| Very interesting, left with many questions
I couldn't wait to see this movie. I had seen some previews which stirred my curiosity. I hoped some questions would be answered, like when Jenkins says the Spirit loves us but he's as mean as fire--or something of that nature. I wanted to get the background on that comment, but the movie offered no further insight. All in all though I found the film captivating, despite my having very little use and patience for so many films made today. I was especially touched by the prison scenes and the revealing depictions of Jenkins with his family. . .just all of the human elements.

Like someone else said, I would like to have seen more even if it meant parts 2 and 3. There were just so many important aspects that shape the story; they were kind of crammed into the too small space of 2 hours (or whatever the length was.)Actually, probably, what I would have rather seen is more of a documentary. Now THAT would be my cup of tea.
