      Audience Member Very balanced documentary profiling the emergence of the religious right here in America. I had no idea Billy Graham was such a big part of getting American Christians more into politics. He would probably say otherwise now, but to see him standing side by side with all these Republican presidents and leaders is interesting. In recent years I've held to the idea that it was (and is) a big mistake for Christians to align ourselves constantly with the Republican party. It's been detrimental and, while well-meaning, has done little good for the cause. My fear is it'll be too late before Christians as a collective whole grasp this and learn to separate ourselves from being allied with one particular party, which also has ideas that are counter to Christian principles.

      Frank Scheck Hollywood Reporter Should be mandatory viewing for those interested in the dominant intersection between religion and politics. Jan 27, 2005 Full Review Lou Lumenick New York Post New Yorkers still won dering how President Bush got re-elected may learn something from this comprehensive British TV documentary. Rated: 2.5/4 Jan 20, 2005 Full Review Stephen Holden New York Times Our turbulent political climate is so clogged with the instant hysteria demanded by the chattering class to keep its voice in shouting condition that a sedate documentary examining the long-term weather patterns is a welcome respite from the noise. Rated: 3/5 Jan 20, 2005 Full Review Pablo Villaça Cinema em Cena Faz um bom trabalho ao analisar os ltimos 50 anos da poltica norte-americana e a crescente aproximao entre Republicanos e evanglicos (e sua insistncia em escutar at imbecis como Falwell louvvel). Pena que perca o foco em seu tero final. Rated: 3/5 Feb 7, 2007 Full Review Urban Cinefile Critics Urban Cinefile With footage of Muslims burning effigies, Andrew Denton begins by setting out the film's agenda: if we are witnessing a clash of civilisations, and we often see public portrayals of fundamentalist Muslim activity, how do they see our Christian evangelists Nov 10, 2006 Full Review Ken Fox TV Guide As an explanation of where we are today, the entire film makes for crucial viewing.
