Amazing
28 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie blew my mind. The distinction between true Christianity and religion is such a crazy line and this documentary attempts to look at one of those edges. There's tons of emotional ups and downs. I've seriously watched this movie more than five times it's so amazing. It's pretty accurate with a little bit of movie making liberty taken as to the order of the clips and the over-arching narrative. Personally I wish there was less drama surrounding a plot line and just more of the everyday issues that these people dealt with because some of them seem cool but some of them seem like legit wackos...not going to mention any names ;)

Hope you enjoy it and regardless of your opinion of blackjack, card-counting, or faith I hope it makes you ask some questions
