Critics pick – 1997 movie The Apostle

I thought that Robert Duvall’s movie The Apostle was excellent and apparently the Movie Critics agree.

Robert Duvall in an interview for the Journal of Religion and Film stated that

“I even heard that David Denby, in the New York Review, said it was the best film ever made in America on a religious subject. He’s a guy who usually rips everything and he really ripped Tender Mercies. But he knows you can’t write those people off. You get below the Mason-Dixon line and you have some of the best music, culture, the two races, the literature, and it’s so rich, so deeply rich in many things. So why not try to get it right if you’re going to make a film of southern religion? That’s what I wanted to do.”
