Critic Reviews for The Green Pastures
Recreates various Sunday school stories from the Old Testament that's told in a spirited manner in the lingo of the rural southern Negro.
It's all ridiculous, of course, but in an open-hearted, naïve sort of way it's an oddly captivating achievement.
There can be no questioning the uplifting moral fiber of the tales, the infectious spirit of its music, or the genuine affection brought to their parts by the actors involved.
All African-American cast in dated but powerful religious drama.
Fine film version of the play with Rex Ingram in a brilliant central performance as God.
