Never as tense and gripping as it should be, the incidents and most of the performances too tamped-down to spark a much-needed sense of animating friction.
Written with less-is-more simplicity by Ginny Lee Overbay, "As It Is In Heaven" grows ever more devastating ...
Director Overbay, working from an effective screenplay by his wife Ginny Lee Overbay, slowly ratchets up the tension in quietly compelling fashion.
Overbay's palette is carefully lyrical, at a benumbed Martha Marcy May Marlene pitch, he pays attention to the verdant landscape and keeps his cast at a pensive and watchful low boil.
"As It Is in Heaven" ultimately doesn't go anywhere unexpected, but it does foster a potent, unexpected bond between its subjects and its audience.
A disquieting film about testing faith.
A chilling, slow-burn thriller...the beautiful Kentucky landscape is wonderfully captured in dream-like visions...
This suspenseful film was shot without any special effects over the course of 17 days. This is powerful filmmaking, admirable for the resourcefulness of the artists.
Even if As It Is in Heaven doesn't have the distinction of treading entirely untrodden ground, it does offer a compelling and engrossing take on the subject -- and from a fresh, up-and-coming filmmaking voice, to boot.
For the most part this movie joins other recent cult studies in identifying the apocalyptic simmer that runs beneath current American culture.
The largely subdued movie could use a little obsessive visionary madness of its own, but Chris Nelson, the replacement guru, has an Opie-gone-Jonestown look that gets freakier as the movie progresses.
This low-budget debut by Joshua Overbay cooks a surprising amount of tension from the barest minimum of ingredients.
