Movie Info

Dave McKean presents THE GOSPEL OF US, the film adaptation of the ground-breaking theatre event starring Michael Sheen. Taking inspiration from one of the defining narratives of our times, this contemporary re-telling of the Passion story took place across the town, with the people of Port Talbot as its cast, crew and heroes. Easter. Port Talbot is in a battle for its life. Authoritarian forces have taken over and the town is in thrall to ICU, a sinister and merciless corporation depleting the town of its resources with scant regard for the residents. The atmosphere is explosive. Resistance is inevitable. When a company man and suicide bomber clash on the beach, catastrophe is only averted by the intervention of a softly spoken man who had disappeared 40 days earlier. Revealed later as the Teacher (Michael Sheen), he attracts followers and becomes a focus for the Resistance. His influence quickly draws the attention of ICU, who perceive him as a danger who must be removed at all costs

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

  • [McKean] keeps things visually interesting and exciting, overlaying images and using the occasional separately filmed segment.

  • The closest you will get to feeling like you have run a marathon, without running a marathon. Once is enough.

  • McKean's film deserves to be watched if only to marvel at the performance of Sheen and the epic scale of the production which gave birth to this misguided collaboration of theatre and cinema.

  • I found it patronising and embarrassing.

  • Its cheap visual effects, blaring sound, dreary pace and aggressive attempts to modernise the story are unbearably gimmicky.

    Apr 12, 2012 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • There is a raw, primitive response to Christ in this film, despite all its community theatre window-dressing. I loved its spirit of a fanfare.
