Review – The Bible According to Hollywood

Though this isn’t exactly the slickest documentary I’ve ever seen, it does a better job than expected at tackling the topic suggested by the title. Talking about religion is difficult, and throwing Hollywood into the mix makes it even harder. But the filmmakers walk a reasonable line between witless film historian praise and Bible-thumping moral condemnation. Sure, they miss some things here and there. Overall, however, this is a good introduction to the movie industry’s treatment of subjects from the Old and New Testaments. Mildly amusing
