5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic inspiring film, 8 July 2012
This review is from: The Gospel of Us [DVD] (DVD)
This film is an amazing feast for the senses and in a very visceral sense beautiful. Other reviewers have outlined the basic promise for the film, I just wanted to add my voice to the 'for gods sake what are you waiting for watch it' group. So often, because I love the world of cinema I feed & escape into a world of celluloid which is 'edited sanitised' directing my emotions in its one hour third minute journey. And more often than not that's fine, its escapism right?...
But I really would not be over enthusing ( although I know its sounds like I am) if I say this film and it's premise allowed my heart and mind to engage upon a journey all of my own. A mixture of the backdrop of the town, the music, the amplification of some aspects whilst downplaying others, the faces in the crowd and the sociopolitical core of the story engaged me in a way I have not been for a long time. And For a change I didn't feel like I was escaping, I felt a real sense of connectiveness being plugged in.... In this think it really helped that it sang to my core ethical belief of ' collective creativity. But whilst the whole 3 day passion event was a credit to everyone involved in its incipient creation. The film does stand alone as a beautiful & thought provoking piece in and of itself.
