    Stands in stark contrast to the quickie political documentaries that have flooded into specialty venues since last year.
  2. A scrupulously balanced look at the subject outlined in the title. Packed with historical, sociological, and cultural context.
  3. Our turbulent political climate is so clogged with the instant hysteria demanded by the chattering class to keep its voice in shouting condition that a sedate documentary examining the long-term weather patterns is a welcome respite from the noise.

    As an explanation of where we are today, the entire film makes for crucial viewing.
  5. 60
    Certainly not as incredulous or mocking as it might have been. If anything, the mood is apprehensive. But it's depressing that--Carter aside--the filmmakers failed to find even one liberal believer.
  6. Should be mandatory viewing for those interested in the dominant intersection between religion and politics.

    A stale and poorly researched documentary.
