A Pentecostal minister with no experience as a filmmaker receives a divine vision instructing him to shoot an epic science fiction film based on the biblical tale of Joseph, and documentary filmmaker Michael Jacobs follows every step of the tumultuous film production that follows. As tension on the set rises and the production experiences a series of disheartening setbacks, Jacobs catches charismatic minister-turned-director Richard Gazowsky and his loyal flock as they strive to see their vision

Somewhere above us, God is watching Audience of One and chuckling. Mere mortals will be doing likewise.
Audience of One follows the descent of a scrappy indie production into a full-blown fiasco and megalomaniacal folly.
At first, we're led to think we're in for a funny, affectionate portrayal of eccentricity. But as equipment malfunctions and debt piles up, it becomes clear the actual subject is the dangerously empowering nature of fanaticism.
Entertaining in a one-dimensional way, but ultimately rather sad, partly because of the level of delusion on display and partly because Gazowsky and company are an easy target.
Mildly engaging and absurdly funny, but that barely compensates for its lack of insight and profound revelations about Pastor Richard Gazowsky.
It's a product of a dangerous sort of tunnel vision that afflicts a number of documentarians these days.
