God’s Angry Man

This is a portrait of Dr Gene Scott a televangelist who ran into problems with the FCC in the late 1970′s and early 1980′s. Scott was eventually shut down, briefly, by the FCC. The documentary, which consists of little more than interviews with Scott and clips from his show, doesn’t really deal with the reasons why the FCC was after him, rather it tries simply to show a man on a mission trying to save people while battling his inner demons.

This is an amazing one of a kind documentary that probably could only have been made by Werner Herzog. Herzog isn’t interested in showing anything other than the man. There is no judgment as to what Scott is all about, there is just Scott talking to Herzog and to his audience. The result is a portrait of a man on a mission, who is doing what he feels to be right. The result is that you walk away from the film feeling that you’ve just met a real person and not a manufactured man of god.

    “God’s work hangs on 600 miserable dollars!!!!”
    and then
    “It has nothing to do with money, at this point.”

    Well done doc. A great style.

    What a sad, sick individual.  I’m old enough, but I’ve never heard of him before — what’s saddest is that this is the sort of person that gets these documentaries written about them — and all the truly good Christians that are doing truly good work in the name of God are forgotten.
