Documentary
Organized religion and its followers take a beating courtesy of Bill Maher in Religulous, a funny and sometimes brutal indictment of all things God-related. Sure to stir up controversy and get Maher banned from a mosque or two, this documentary is a case of a star not letting his celebrity get in the way of his mission. Maher goes at people with ferocity, and the results can be shocking. It’s one of the more daring documentaries I’ve ever seen, with Maher constantly telling rooms full of devoutly religious people that they are full of shit. Christians, Jews, Muslims, Mormons and Scientologists all face Maher’s wrath; he didn’t make many friends. The film is funny, and just a little scary, as Maher illustrates just how much religious teachings have been bastardized over the years.
