Glory! Glory! ★★★ 1990 (R)

Slashing satire about TV evangelism. Thomas as the meek son of founder of Church of the Champions of Christ brings in lewd female rock singer to save the money-machine ministry from financial ruin. Rock music, sex, and MTV-like camera work make it worth seeing. Whitmore is a treat. 152m/C VHS . Ellen Greene, Richard Thomas, Barry Morse, James Whitmore, Winston Rekert; D: Lindsay Anderson; W: Stan Daniels.
