One reaches the conclusion fairly early in Rodger's gorgeously photographed but obnoxiously quick-cut-edited film that the question "What is God?" has no satisfactory nor universally agreeable answers.
The drubbing score leaves one nearly insensate to the fact that Rodgers has nothing original or even interesting to say about his subject, flattening fine points of scripture to recommend interfaith group hugs.
British commercial photographer Peter Rodger took his camera -- and a crew to document him using his camera -- around the world like a well-connected dilettante, asking people the uselessly vague question ''What is God?''
