Sympathy for Delicious

I feel fortunate for having watched this little known movie.

There are so many moral elements to it that, after it was viewed on HBO last night, my thoughts this early morning are still are on the multiple messages it delivered.

If you are a Christian, then this movie is for you.
If you are an atheist, then this movie is for you.
If you are a Buddhist, then this movie is for you.

I could go on, because this movie is about being a human being

    I’m glad you enjoyed it but I watched it and I didn’t find it at all interesting (I’m an atheist but that doesn’t affect my escapist views of a film). And the correlated critical scores on Rotten Tomatoes also pan it. Still, it’s all down to subjective opinion of course! I love this film called Ravenous that was panned.

    For a truly great religious/cultural crossover film I’d recommend the documentary Stranded: I’ve come from a plane that crashed on the mountains. Truly inspiring – and a real life story, of course.

      Then you weren’t impressed with the conflict which occurred between the priest and the healer? I found that very interesting. The priest was accumulating hundreds of thousands of dollars a day, but was unwilling to share $50 of that amount to the healer, who, in effect, was homeless.

      Even at the trial, the priest lied and denounced the healer, knowing that it would lead to incarceration, removing any chance of more being healed through his ability.

      It said more about the monetary and institutional greed prevalent in organized religion than most other critiques I’ve seen before.

        Not especially, no, I found it all cliched. Good performances, but the plot wasn’t something I’ve not seen, or considered, before. This is just my opinion – if you enjoyed it, great, but it wasn’t for me. Watch the Stranded documentary I mentioned if you can – lot’s of existential/spiritual themes there. And it’s very moving.
