Marty Rathburn called me "a rimless zero". I suppose that's even less than zero because without the rim it's just the nothingness in the middle.
It sounds vaguely obscene, doesn't it? "Look at my rimless zero!" Ahem!

I was so excited to finally see this documentary, however the lack of access Louis is able to gain into the church makes for a very boring and uncaptivating documentary.
apart from the odd confrontation with a church member which is somewhat entertaining, there is nothing of substance in this 'movie' no direction at all.
We all know they're a bunch of loonies but this being a theroux doco I wanted something more. Something that would really shock me.
Perhaps this is the reason for the delayed release of this film. With such little footage I can imagine this being a challenging piece to put together.
Why couldn't he go undercover and try to gain some sort of access into the church? Perhaps do an auditing session and turn it into an interview very subtly (which we know he's good at).
I'm a huge fan of this man's work but this this just doesn't do it for me. I rarely lose focus when watching anything louis. I just can;t find any sort of story in this. A strange movie that has left little impact, only repeating things we already knew about this psychotic church.
