The Apostle

This movie has to be one of the most boring films I have almost sat through. Robert Duvall wrote, directed and starred in The Apostle about a southern preacher who bashes an adulterer in the head with a baseball bat.

He's full of love for God, but because of his act of "passion", he must disappear deep into the south where he begins a new church.

This movie also stars Farrah Fawcett as the wife who was cheating on Duvall and Billy Bob Thornton as a man who isn't happy with a new church in his area.

Ultimately, I suppose this is a movie about redemption, but it almost gets lost in the boring middle section. I actually started reading a book in order to keep myself awake. While I'm a fan of Robert Duvall, this film was a huge dud.
