Legendary film director John Huston creates one of his most cerebral films that will stay with the viewer
for a long time. Set in the American Deep South during the post-war era, Wise Blood stars Brad Dourif as
Hazel Motes, an unhinged and aimless war-veteran, who decides to become a Bible-thumping preacher
for a quasi-religious cult called ‘The Church Without Christ’. Linking up with a fraudulent hustler from
hellfire-and-brimstone preaching circuit - who pretends to be blind for the assembled believers - Motes
is put under pressure by the fraudster to blind himself for real so that he can truly ‘see the light’. A dark
satire on religious movements that, beautifully acted by Dourif, Huston and William Hickey
