The New York Times
This overlong, mawkish yet weirdly mesmerizing film doesn’t just invite identification with its tragically unhinged character; it compels it, by piling on biblically horrible misfortunes, weepy confessions and editorializing music. show more

While I symphatized...this movie presents the worst that can happen to anyone..and I mean anyone. He needed help that for sure but didn\'t get it. He needed God but couldn\'t recognize it. His wife is a stereotyped, uncaring, unloving, selfish person. too much..too much!!!

this movie clearly identifies the need for the human race to believe in God. To believe that God can make all things possible. To believe that God loves us so much. That there is nothing God has given us that we cannot bear. This movie had me in tears. it had me begging the Lord for guidance. The acting in this was nothing short of brilliant and the movie itself, a masterpiece of the human soul.
