This is a work of Fiction
6 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

Do not assume this is a factual representation of the Church. It apparently was meant to be a cautionary tale set in the future. There is mention of a Vatican IV - which of course is a non-entity. You must read the novel upon which this is based in order to understand what the author meant. Nevertheless, this movie has many moments that will force one to consider what it should mean to be Catholic in today's world. Who are the heroes? Who are the villains? How should I live my life as a follower of Christ? The version I watched was quite "scratchy," and definitely has the early 1970s B movie feel, but the story was, again, one to ponder.
