Oh dear. I can’t wait to see what Margaret and David have to say about THIS film: “Religulous”.
As far as I can see, it’s just a re-hash of Richard Dawkin’s documentary “The God Delusion” without the upperclass English accent. The basic thesis appears to be that Religious belief is ridiculous (hence that awful title) and you can prove it by interviewing people with ridiculous religious ideas.
As one reviewer put it:
To call “Religulous” a documentary would be generous. The film ultimately fails as a documentary because it is so woefully one-sided. Maher’s point-of-view is the only one he cares about. The interviews serve only to prove his point. While he, at times, offers thought-provoking questions like “why is faith good?”, Maher’s role is primarily to poke fun at people who dare believe in the illogical, even the ridiculous.
Well, thankfully, it doesn’t appear to very entertaining, so I can’t imagine anyone actually going to see it in the cinemas. I don’t even think Geraldine would touch this one.
