Must Watch: Religulous

200px-Religulous_posterThe movie that inspired the name of this very website. Some might say its an outright rip off even. Never mind. Bill Maher, the American talk show host and comedian, wrote and starred in this comedy/documentary which probes organised religion and associated beliefs, in a satirical manner of course. Memorable parts of the film include an interview with Pastor John Wescott whose aim is to ‘help people overcome’ homosexuality, interview with Jose Miranda who has his cult following as he claims to be the second coming of the Jesus, and also when Bill visits the ‘Holy Land Experience’, a Christian theme park in Orlando, Florida.

Maher, an outspoken atheist himself, doesn’t give religion any slack in this film. Perfect.

If you have trouble finding it, here’s a hint, ‘surf the channel’.
