This film follows Marjoe's return to the preaching circuit & his phenomenal success with the Christian Tent Revivals.
Although clearly corrupted by money he had an electrifying charisma & ability to communicate & hook the masses. He seemed to have some dignity at the end but fooled many, an interesting documentary on a clever conman.
Inside the brain of a con artist, this documentary is everything that's good about Elmer Gentry with the added benefit of being all true. Marjoe is an unappealing person, but the film is starkly honest and unflinching in its condemnation. The thesis isn't as intelligent about faith as it might be (because after all faith is far more complex than can be shown in a film or garnered in a tent rally), but this is still a valuable and compelling film.
Overall, Marjoe is a fascinating look at the business of conversion.
