Plot: A preacher from Texas finds himself on the run after he catches his wife having an affair and putting the man in a coma. Relocating to Louisiana and taking a humble mechanic job, he can't help but start preaching again - on the radio, on the street and maybe he can use his gift to save a crumbling church. -- Chris Kavan

This extraordinary film is written, directed and financed by Robert Duvall. He stumped up the cash when Hollywood rejected his pitch. Costing only $6m, the film when on to gross triple that amount. Duvall plays a preacher who goes on the lam after unwittingly killing his ex wife's lover. Aware of his sin he's torn between keeping his freedom and seeking redemption. Most of the actors, and non actors, are Duvall's pals working for next to nothing. Filmed entirely on location there's much to marvel at in the southern countryside, notably the Tag Team Preachers. This is as spiritual as you'll ever likely to get in a work of fiction.

It really shows that a Christian can have promblems. Not only a Christian but a Pastor as well. It had its flaws but for a movie that is trying to be daring. It was daring. I would have love to see Jack Nicholson play the role. But Robert Duvall pulled off a great performance. It will challenge you and make you think about life.
