Wise Blood Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Set in the Deep South during the postwar era, Wise Blood stars Brad Dourif as an aimless veteran, who decides to become a Bible-thumping preacher (for a questionable concern called "The Church Wihout Christ") principally because he hasn't anything better lined up. [[Performer~P19921~Dourif~braddourif]] links up with a veteran of the hellfire-and-brimstone circuit, who for business purposes pretends to be blind. The older man persuades [[Performer~P19921~Dourif~braddourif]] to blind himself for real so that he can truly "see the light" (yes, the movie is that weird). Director [[Performer~P95260~Huston~johnhuston]], himself, appears as [[Performer~P19921~Dourif~braddourif]]'s grandfather. Adapted from the one-of-a-kind novel by Flannery O'Connor, Wise Blood was a noble experiment but a box-office failure-though, to be fair, [[Performer~P95260~Huston~johnhuston]] never set out to make a blockbuster from O'Connor's offbeat tale. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
