Storyline

A gritty, heartfelt drama about a brother and sister who both start out with the American Dream of running their own business and being successful. Teresa goes about this dream in a good way, meaning she works hard and treats people right. Her brother, Solomon, is a hustler who borrows money from loan sharks to open a music store. When he doesnt pay, the sharks come after him, but it's his sister who ends up in a wheelchair. She doesn't know it was her brother's fault. The film follows how Solomon descends on a downward spiral while losing faith in everything, while Teresa becomes a stronger person as her faith increases. She eventually learns it was his fault, and they must come to terms and make amends. Written by Andrea J Loney

Decent flick...but the title "God's Waiting List"...
2 July 2006 | by (NYC,United States) – See all my reviews

The musical score from the films original composer Vincent Gillioz was emotionally moving. However while the movie is entertaining and engaging up to a point, it collapses into an almost sophomoric message movie, good as an after-school PAX TV special, but not good for an educated film going audience. Confussion sets in quickly if this is a movie about hope or an anti-drug message movie or a flick about honesty?

Became slightly perturbed by the condescension of the spoken dialogue as if the audience were all naive simpleton's incapable of following a complex story line with only subtly being offered. On a positive note, the acting by Roger Guenveur Smith and Nicki Micheaux were simply excellent. The LA Echo Park locations were gritty and real, reminiscent of "To Live and Die in LA". Small nuances like where Solomon's business were located in...the subtleness of the location and the decor said a lot about his past capital financing concerns.

While can't recommend this flick to family or friends, as they may give queer looks as a Bible thumping Jesus freak, it is worth checking out in the privacy of your own viewing.
