Movie Reviews

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I saw this when it played on network television. It was an intelligent and respectful treatment of the subject of comparative religion. The treatment was surprisingly respectful as current mass media products go, and not excessively concerned with political correctness. Worthwhile and well done."

"A well done documentary with the current world's religious leaders: interesting questions and honest answers- offers a rare insight into the private lives and thoughts of these important leaders of today."

"In reviewing this documentary, a follow-up to their personal experiences on 9/11, Jules and Gedeon Naudet seek to answer the spiritual questions that resulted from their presence during and after 9/11. Although approached with a kind of naivete, the innocense of the questions put to the great spiritual leaders of our time were true gifts of wisdom and insight into the different faiths of the world and the comman thread of humanity that still can be found. This documentary was not widely viewed, but the subtle message of hope, the belief in a power greater than ourselves, the ingenuity and the persistance of faith by all concerned was at once touching and overwhelming in it's scope. I know of no other documentary that approached these great spiritual leaders with questions that men of little or no faith would always want to ask. Moving aside "political" correctness, these leaders tell stories of persecution and persistance in the face of hate, ignorance and personal strife. I appreciated the fact that no conclusion or resolution to one particular faith is highlighted or glorified, but rather, the documentary speaks for itself in showing the difficulty of true faith in the face of man's inhumanity to man. I highly recommend this history lesson, mostly because I feel it will be a forgotten or little used tool for teaching the philosophies and belief systems prevalent in our society today. It is a masterful accounting of the true search for the face of God."
