  • You'd never guess the subject matter of "God Loves Uganda" from its innocuous-sounding title.

    October 24, 2013 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Williams' alarm is balanced by his measured observation of a group of twentysomethings from the Kansas City-based International House of Prayer.

    October 17, 2013 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Those who demand pure objectivity from their documentaries may stumble on God Loves Uganda, which never pretends to be impartial, probably because it's next to impossible to do so when tackling this topic.

    For awhile, I was having a hard time tracking this film down because I had convinced myself that it was called God Hates Uganda. Here we have the story of local and foreign evangelists competing for the hearts and minds of Ugandan citizens with little regard for the hatred that they brew.

    It's commendable that this film tried to shed light on the horrifying influence of conservative Christian values on Uganda. I think a lot of what this film showcases needed to be seen and speaks a lot about the political affiliation that these religions push on countries that don't have the same rights and freedoms as those protected in other countries. The interviews were solid, and following the IHOP missionaries was intriguing, but the correlation between these people and Uganda needed to be made clearer. There is legislation in Uganda against homosexuality, but there was nothing about the violence enacted against these people, the discrimination, and the countless deaths. The funeral scene was a good start and showed human kindness exists in Uganda, but it didn't show the true impact of these people and their heinous causes. A very beautiful film overall, it still showed the Ugandan societal landscape, and what has changed its features in the past thirty years.
