Set amongst the urban decay and unfettered angst of Los Angeles, Police Detective John Smith battles alcoholism and cynicism. Going about his daily routine, initially John remains complacent over a seemingly ordinary prostitute murder. But when John's intuition awakens, he experiences revealing visions about the victim and her murder. John must conquer his vices and overcome his skepticism to embrace intuition, question the unusual suspects, and allow his visions to illuminate the truth. A smartly written, modern day, metaphysical tale with a "surprise" ending, THE 23RD PSALM ushers in a new generation of urban transcendental cinema. Blending the structure and character relationships of Akira Kurosawa's RASHÔMON and Orson Welles CITIZEN KANE, THE 23RD PSALM is an evolved exegesis of the human psyche and the nature of man. Written by Christopher C. Odom

23rd Psalms is a awesome movie and everyone needs to see it
19 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Everyone here in Ohio has enjoyed the movie 23rd Psalm very much so . My friends want to know when you are making part 2 . The story keeps your attention and you really have to pay attention to the story line. The scriptures were a very nice touch The story really makes you stop and think of what the bible tells all of us and we really need to open our eyes to what is to come. The actors/actresses did a very good job protrating the character in the movie showing the scriptures and saying them was a good idea . Excellent job to all of you who took part in making this movie Cornelius Booker III we are proud of you and your crew. Your family. The Bookers
