Back to Church?!
Alright... I realize that those who don't know me might be confused about Rapture. Why is the guy who made Psychopathia Sexualis making a short film about a Pentecostal preacher?
Oh ye of little faith.
I don't want to go into a lengthy explanation of the film -- I'm going to post it online in a week or two, so you can see for yourself -- but suffice it to say, it does not offer a conventional view of charismatic religion. It does not make fun of the religion, either. I think it's pretty honest, actually.
However, it does make some observations about that particular denomination... for example, the way fear is used to coerce people to salvation.
And of course... I wrestle with my usual philosophical demon ... and explore the strange ways in which sexual desire manifests itself under the yoke of repression.
