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.

It Asks a Lot of Questions, And Gets Answers For Very Few
15 March 2019 | by wisemantonofskiSee all my reviews

There's an intriguing philosophy at work behind this seemingly meandering story, dealing with issues of blind faith, the morality of the divine and the challenges of 'staying on the path' in the modern world. However, what lets the film down is the morose and plodding nature of its execution that left it struggling to hold my attention between its titular interview scenes; while its conflict is confused and seemingly overcome by a mere change in mood rather than any attempt to address issues constructively.
