Gone With the Pope (2010)
Critic Reviews for Gone With the Pope
It's gloriously, hilariously offensive, including all manner of racist and sexist jokes and one sequence of WTF? grotesquerie worthy of John Waters.
"Gone With the Pope" may have a cult audience appeal. I just didn't have the patience to go along with this nonsense.
Finds unmistakable personality in the midst of a potential mess, making what should've been a disposable curiosity into a formidable continuation of the "Massacre Mafia Style" aesthetic.
..in the pantheon of "bat-shit crazy WTF cinema," Gone with the Pope ranks with the best of the worst.
Audience Reviews for Gone With the Pope
Such madness! Duke Mitchell shot a movie in 1975, he didn't finish it before he dies 6 years later...and then it was rediscovered and put together for our entertainment today. This movie is strange, with a wackadoo premise, bad acting (Duke Mitchell lacks the talent but he gives his all!), and moments that just boggle the mind. Mitchell plays a gangster who decides to kidnap the Pope and ransom him for a dollar from every Catholic in the world. The movie is out there, but kind of worth a look if you enjoy a so-bad-it's-good kind of movie.
This isn't "good" but it's fun "bad" and that sometimes counts for something. If they ever make a sequel Torgo has to play the Pope.
How do you mix religious themes, graphic violence, and the rudest humor since George Carlin? Apparently, you get Duke Mitchell to write, direct, produce and star in an amazing piece of cinema. Truthfully, some laypeople will give it a pass, but those seeking an independent film with style would do well to see this movie.
