Gambling, Gods and LSD Feb 20, 2003

Gambling, Gods and LSD (2002)
Rating: star star star star star (2 stars out of 5)
Cast: John Paul Young (as himself)
Director: Peter Mettler
Genre: Documentary
Run Time: 180 minutes

Finally, after 2 failed attempts at seeing it, I found time after my yoga class to commute to The Music Hall on Danforth St. to watch the 9PM screening on the last day of the 3-hour movie. I was ready to immerse myself into it and "ingest Christ" in the process. (One critic described the movie experience as "ingesting Christ" - something I had to find out myself).

The movie had a hallucinogenic feel to it in terms of visual delivery. Pace was slow, spacey and tentative much like the common experience in real life with a few puffs of weed. As much as I was surrendering myself to the movie and taking it at face value, totally open to its message, I failed to see its point...try as I might in giving it the benefit of the doubt. I left after the second hour, not wanting to spend another hour in hoping the movie will redeem itself. I walked away from the theater wondering if I simply just 'didn't get it'.
