The Gospel According to Harry back to product details

This One's Enough to Bring Me Back to the Bible

Kino International is currently treating the USA to the work of filmmaker Lech Majewski. Having seen two of his films-- GOSPEL ACCORDING TO HARRY and "The Garden of Earthly Delights," I cannot, for the life of me, figure out why. A more pompous, pretentious and pedestrian moviemaker I don't think I've encountered. "Gospel," filmed in 1993, stars a thin, handsome and younger-than-we-usually-see-him Viggo Mortensen; a gorgeous Jennifer Rubin, missing from films and TV since 2001; a wry Jack Kehoe and a rarely-seen Rita Tushingham. Reason to watch this infantile silliness ends with the cast. Majewski's lame attempts at satire are plain awful; even back in the early 90s they must have appeared tired (setting up housekeeping in the desert and vacuuming the sand? Please.) There is a certain "how-bad-can-things-get?" quality that may keep you glued to the proceedings. But, really, haven't you more important things on your plate? Maybe walk the dog or wash the car....
