Hey! I know that movie. In fact, I already started a thread about it in this forum long ago, but no one seemed to have heard about it at the time. It's one of my favorites, though I would hardly call it a great cinematic achievement.
There are a lot of 'Bobs' out there -- the Jesus salesmen.
Cinematically (technically) speaking, I'd agree. However, because of its honesty, I'd say it was a great achievement.
I was struck by the self-contradictory nature of PF's character, and how typical he was of self-proclaimed lovers of God. Deluded, they actually hate God, and are willing to do practically anything to rid themselves of their burden, even if means dumping it onto someone else.
My appreciation for the film was mostly for how honestly and accurately it dealt with a salient aspect of Western everyday life, as opposed to the usual subjective junk that oozes out of the system.
I don't recall your thread on the movie; must be pre-Freaky!
