I am surprised that no one else wrote of what was most vivid to me: the visuals in much of the film were like a Norman Rockwell painting. They painted a nostalgia for what never really was quite so,; a physical manifestation of the Cause's philosophy transformation from memory to imagination.

Watched the whole darn thing. Then wished I hadn't wasted my time. I like to see a character grow and change. These characters do not grow - they waste their lives, and make the viewer feel the entire film a waste. If you find that feeling compelling, then watch it.

Critics don't pay to see movies--they get in free. In fact, they get paid to see movies. Maybe that impedes their ability to sync-up with public opinion. No one in his or her right mind should spend good money to see this painfully boring movie about a disgusting psycho/sexual creep, a charasmatic criminal posing as a \"religious prophet,\" and the weak-minded people who follow him

Superb acting! JP was at his very best. It also helps to know what the movie is really about.
