The Cross(The Cross: The Arthur Blessitt Story) Reviews

March 30, 2009
This wannabe-inspirational docu shares its hero's devotion to preaching the gospel. But the film's emotional manipulations come at the expense of a more complex, illuminating look at the man himself.

The gee-whiz rhetoric and breathless amateurism of The Cross is not likely to inspire.
