Can a movie about Evangelicals and Ugandan gays be a bad?
Can a movie about evil American evangelicals and good Ugandan gays be a bad movie? I'm afraid so. There is a great movie/documentary to be made about this explosive issue, but it's not this thin effort.

This film just doesn't do justice to its subject. A film that portrays the religious right persecuting Ugandan gays pushes all the right buttons to guarantee a positive reception but there is a lot wrong with this film.

It appears to have be edited to serve as a 'gay rights' movie out of footage that was not originally intended for that purpose, because a lot of what is needed to establish the premise of the movie just isn't there. We see starry-eyed American kids being sent to Africa as IHOP missionaries and we see homophobic Ugandan pastors, but nothing establishes any sort of link between US evangelism and Ugandan homophobia. It is as if two independent documentaries - one about American missionaries and another about Ugandan pastors was pasted together.

I am most certainly not denying the existence of a link between the religious right and Ugandan policy on homosexuality. What I am saying is that this movie makes a poor fist of documenting it. The subject is terrific, the editing and photography are fine but I think this film was cobbled together to exploit interest in a fashionable subject rather being objectively good.
