A patently nice man, Ralph is a not very compelling figure.

It's like Capturing the Friedmans scrubbed to a happy ending.

What emerges is a complex portrait of a man who cares more for humanity than for his own children, often left to languish in orphanages while their father scoured bodies and minds.

The self-indulgent film also suffers from a lack of focus.

A bittersweet story of a family and the surprising effects a crusading eccentric can have on them.

Although the segments featuring Bronner's son, Ralph, veer uncomfortably toward hagiography, director Sara Lamm balances out the love fest by exploring the dark side of being a soap-hawking prophet and the toll that ALL-ONE-FAITH took on Bronner's family.

Tyro helmer Sara Lamm satisfyingly stitches together the family soap opera into a comfortable crazy quilt without sacrificing its unique, oddly topical edge.
