Indianapolis Film Festival's Summary Page for ...an American Messiah
The reason I’m writing is that the woman who wrote the fest’s one-sentence “summary” really understood the film at a deeper level than most, and expressed it SO clearly in a single sentence.
“Writer/director Chris Hansen’s mockumentary is an astute comic exploration of America’s preoccupation with religion that reveals the dubious results when marketing and capitalism become an indispensable part of spirituality. - Elisabeth Hegmann”
Elisabeth, you totally nailed it. Thanks.
