Overall, A Powerful Spiritual Journey
21 September 2015 | by lisajohnson-35200See all my reviews

It's not an action film where everything slams in your face. It's a slow reveal, an "outside in" story. The filmmakers start with the exterior of a dirty homeless man, ostensibly with no value, and then show the interior of this man, one that is pure love. How Bob could even conceive of trusting anyone ever again, after he was bashed in the head by a frying pan at the hand of his mother, is beyond me. Then his mother drops him off at a mental institution, The Laconia State School for the Feeble Minded, where unspeakable abuse is rampant. People are thrown down the stairs. Hit over the head with baseball bats wrapped in towels. And there's more. The filmmakers take Bob back to this house of horrors and we watch him give us a tour. It is chilling, touching, heartbreaking. You will be changed.
