4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and original, 16 April 2006
This review is from: Dogma [DVD] [1999] (DVD)
This film has a pretty complex plot, but the basic premise is that two angels (played by Matt Damon and Ben Affleck) have been cast out of heaven and condemned to spend the rest of eternity in Wisconsin. They believe that they have discovered a loophole which will allow them to get back into heaven, but if they succeed in carrying out their plan, it would actually result in the destruction of the universe. The movie draws heavily on Catholic mythology and contains some interesting twists on it (such as the fact that the 13th disciple, was written out of the Bible because he was black) - which prompted some mindless controversy on the film's release. This isn't an outstanding film, but it's entertaining, very original and quite thought-provoking. Also, it features Alanis Morissette as God, which is probably one of the most brilliant and inspired pieces of casting in the history of cinema.
