This review of “Hellbound?” made me especially happy

It’s by Variety reviewer Justin Chang. A brief excerpt:

Admirers of nuanced theological discourse, an admittedly small and underserved segment of the moviegoing public, have a welcome conversation-starter at hand in “Hellbound?” By narrowing its range of voices to Christian leaders, thinkers and writers, Kevin Miller’s sober, stimulating documentary on the hot topic of eternal damnation necessarily limits its audience, but achieves a level of rhetorical eloquence that would theoretically appeal to open-minded viewers of any religious stripe. Likely to offend more than a few evangelicals with its support for a universalist point of view, this civilized provocation could generate considerable discussion in faith-based theatrical play and ancillary.

You can read the rest of the review here. This follows positive press coverage in a variety of other publications, including the New York Times, the Village Voice and the Wall Street Journal/Associated Press–and some not so nice coverage in Christianity Today. But I think Frank Schaeffer does a good job of putting Christianity Today’s coverage in perspective (as only Frank can).
