The Gospel Road
on 25 November 2007
I bought this as present for my wife and had no great expectations of it...But I was wrong. Musically this is top drawer and if you are a Christian ,or even have feeling for your fellow man, it is profoundly moving. There is a sensitivity, creativity, and patent sincerity about this film that belies its age and any stereotypes you might have about american gospel and Johny Cash.Visually it is stunning (filmed on location in Israel), and emotionally it is at times overpowering. I would go so far as to say in its own way it is a poetic masterpiece.
Do not be put off by the fact the actor who portrays Jesus (the director) is blond! Cash said when the film came out that everyone feels at some point they have do do something meaningful in their life and that that's what this film is to him. He co-produced,and co-wrote the film. He narrates it and sings most of the songs.....Top notch
