      Praying for Armageddon

      2023 1h 37m Documentary Mystery & Thriller List
      83% Tomatometer 6 Reviews Praying for Armageddon is a political thriller that investigates the dangerous consequences of the fusion between Evangelical Christianity and American politics. Through years of reporting, this film not only reveals how structures of fundamentalism weaken the very fabric of American democracy, but also highlights the devastating impact religion wields on U.S. foreign policy. From a grassroots foundation and megachurch empires to the dark backroom maneuvering in Washington D.C., this film goes inside a movement that ultimately aims to destroy our civilization. This deep dive into power and policy unveils how politicians driven by faith embrace Israel as the key to their prophetic vision for the end of days, at any cost, ultimately escalating the spirals of violence in the Middle East.

      Jessica Kiang Variety A glossy, persuasive and increasingly alarming documentary exposing the influence of the fundamentalist Christian lobby on US politics. Mar 27, 2023 Full Review Ricardo Gallegos La Estatuilla A documentary as chilling as it is alarming whose relevance grows as the days go by and the genocide in Palestine continues. [Full Review in Spanish] Dec 29, 2023 Full Review Heidy Morales Hye's Musings The film is a... real deep dive into religion, power and policy, this film unveils how politicians driven by faith will do whatever it takes to ensure their prophetic vision for the end of days comes true. At any cost. Rated: 4/5 Sep 15, 2023 Full Review Courtney Small POV Magazine Praying for Armageddon works best as an introductory lesson on the dangerous influence U.S. evangelicals have on modern politics...One just wishes it provided a few suggestions on which wires to cut before the Judgement Day bomb goes off. May 6, 2023 Full Review Bill Chambers Film Freak Central Praying for Armageddon left me fearful and hopeless, quite intentionally and therefore successfully. Rated: 2.5/4 May 6, 2023 Full Review Andrew Parker The Gate It’s the sort of film that makes its points loudly, clearly, and thoughtfully in a short amount of time before falling into the same trap as the subject it’s trying to criticize. After awhile, all that doomsaying becomes numbing instead of galvanizing. Rated: 5/10 May 5, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews
