"Be a record keeping people"
9 December 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

One thing I learned in watching The Mountain Of The Lord is that Joseph Smith among other things told his flock to be "a record keeping people". I suppose that's one of the reasons that there so many films done by or with the cooperation of the Church of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints about their church history. Obeying Smith's commandment they've got quite a store of archival material to work with.

When you go to Salt Lake City as I did several years ago the center of the town is the structure that this film is about. From the time that Brigham Young gave the word we're building our spiritual headquarters in Salt Lake City it took 40 years to complete the work. The story is told in flashback by the LDS Church's Fourth President Wilford Woodruff who was in on it from the beginning as he's being interviewed by a New York City newspaper reporter.

As per a lot of the Mormon historical films I've seen there is a great eye for historical detail and in the end the location looks about as I would have imagined Salt Lake City to be.

The Mountain Of The Lord is a well constructed film, but probably only for LDS audiences.
