The gee-whiz rhetoric and breathless amateurism of The Cross is not likely to inspire.
The documentary The Cross is not going to displace The Ten Commandments as the official movie of the Easter season.
What inspired his faith in the first place? Does he have family? How did his constant wandering affect them?
In telling the story of globe-trotting evangelist Arthur Blessitt, director Matthew Crouch allows Christian priorities to gloss over details that a more objective filmmaker would consider essential.
The Cross opts to be a wan inspirational film that rams its Christian message down your throat -- which is, ironically, the exact opposite of Blessitt's soft sell.
It would be nice to be able to call The Cross a mockumentary. But the director's Christian Broadcasting background makes it extremely unlikely that his intention was provide viewers with a good laugh at the expense of the Blessitt Arthur.
A profoundly engrossing and inspirational film that candidly explores Arthur Blessitt's passionate heart, mind and soul, but feels somewhat incomplete without enough insight into his life beyond his courageous journeys around the world.
Heartfelt but pedestrian, so to speak, documentary of an evangelist who for decades carried a 12-foot wooden cross around the globe to spread the gospel.
