Movie Review by AJ
May 12th, 2006

God help Duvall, The Apostle is a hugely missed opportunity. Duvall's performance in the film as the Apostle E.F. is very good, and the film is filled with lots of little moments that, taken by themselves, seem to be very deep and meaningful (such as when E.F. yells at God). But, taken in the context of the ill-developed screenplay, they mean nothing. The pacing is off by about a million miles, and the movie meanders from point to point with a dry, dusty lull. In the end, the film perfectly parallels E.F.'s sermons: Superficially complex, but ultimately empty. What do you learn about God when someone just yells that God is a great god and should be worshipped devoutly? I'm not disagreeing with those points, but my meaning is, they could be expressed in a much more effective and meaningful manner than either E.F. or Duvall seem to be capable of.
