I did the final cut on this film
I was the producer of the completion of this film and have the credit of Producer on the print. Bigas Lunas has a unique and powerful style, letting Hopper go fairly wild here, but within the confines of Bigas's deeply felt spirituality. The film is full of unforgettable moments and images, many so vivid that they can change our remembrance of what is real. The film moves from Houston with Hopper in a revivalist church, a minister losing his faith. The film moves to Spain, where a young woman experiences an unusual stigmata-like experience that clearly sets her as an affirmation of Catholic reality. Beautiful, disturbing and I hope, worth seeing.
