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.
Ridiculous as it is, Audience of One is more chilling than funny.
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.
Too good to be missed.
I'm still recommending it, mainly because of the great story it hints at and for the way it genuinely captures the excitement and heartbreak of filmmaking.
Like a character from a Wernor Herzog film, the audience watches as the Pastor of a church decides to make a big budget mash up of The Ten Commandments and Star Wars called Gravity: The Story of Joseph. Like Kinski at the end of Aguirre, you truly witness madness at the final congregation. It's actually kind of chilling, I can honestly say my jaw was hanging open.
Still, up until that point it's a fun film about a guy who dares to dream bigger than he has any right to. Also, it's an ode to Star Wars in the fact that the pastor hadn't seen any movies until he was 40 until he saw Star Wars, which it's awesomeness I'm certain drove him on this crazy mission.
