Quotes

[first lines]
Paul Asher: [narrating] When I hear people say "I lost faith", I picture them giving up, no longer able to keep looking. It wasn't like that for me. I even thought, selfishly, witnessing a war would bring me closer to God. But the more I prayed, the more empty my prayers seemed.

Not quite. Missed opportunity.
2 September 2018 | by danielendySee all my reviews

I love spiritual themes. This movie missed the mark, in my opinion. It's got so much potential, but it's squandered. I loved The Shack which wasn't perfect either but it came much closer than this movie.

"Interview" asks great questions but doesn't deliver any satisfying answers. I know it's good to leave things unsaid and it's not good to spell everything out for the audience, but they leave way too much unsaid - so much that this ends up being a nothingburger.

Oh, God! Was 10x better. Evan Almighty! Was great. Bruce Almighty! Was great. And many others do a much better job. This just raises questions. It baffles me how screenwriters can get away with such a big miss. There is so much good info available on how to write a great screenplay!

Every movie can be boiled down to the "author's message." The message here is that "god is good and mysterious." Gee, thanks.

It's not clear if the author has an opinion and is simply unwilling to share it or if they only have faith and questions.
