"Do you *really* want to know the answers to the questions you're asking?" - God (from the movie)

In 1990, a man named Neale Donald Walsch experienced a car accident resulting in a broken neck, which propelled him into a downward spiral of job loss, poverty, and homelessness. Eventually, he began to ask existential questions that many people ask, "What is the meaning of life? Why am I here?"

In 1995, he heard a voice asking, "Have you had enough yet? Are you ready now?"

God had come calling to answer those questions--and many more. This question and answer format served as the basis for the Conversations with God series, as well as the books What God Wants and Home with God.

Conversations with God the movie dramatizes events leading up to those mystical dictations, flashing back to Neale's struggles with finding a job--and even finding food in alleyway dumpsters. Alone and with minimal personal belongings, Neale lived in a tent, scrounged soda cans for money, and pounded the pavement in the hopes of securing a stable job.

Slowly, things begin looking up when he gets a job as a weekend DJ and finds a decent place to live. But when the radio station becomes bankrupt, Neale begins to write down his frustrations and questions--and the results were an incredible gift to humanity.

I admit, after seeing the debacle Indigo (which starred Neale Donald Walsch), I didn't have high hopes for this movie. However, not only was I very surprised at the quality of Conversations with God, I was deeply moved. (And it was a Divine touch I sorely needed at the time.)

I was unaware of Neale's background until I watched this movie, and realizing what he had come through made his books even more meaningful.

Format: DVD
This film was billed as being based on the "Conversations with God" books but the reality is that this film is the life story of author Neale Donald Walsch from homelessness to best selling author. When the "conversation with God" does come, it's halfway through the movie and lasts all of about 10 minutes, and it's more of a lecture than a "conversation." Though making a film of those books would be nearly impossible, I had hopes that someone's creative genius would come up with a way to translate the ideas of the book series into relatable situations, little dramatic examples sprinkled throughout the film. I did not expect what came across as a vanity project on the part of Neale Donald Walsch to have his life story played out on screen.

Having said that, aside from the mistitle and claims, the film does do something rare that most films don't cover: homelessness. We rarely see homelessness in films and this film humanizes the very people we often pass on the street without a word or glance. This film also shows a lot of Oregon, with scenes in Portland and Ashland. And I absolutely adored the cute, quirky redhead young lady on the bus. There are some spiritual gems in this film, particularly the phrase one should always ask oneself: "what would love do now?"

While I'm inclined to give this film 3 stars, I think it's great that more spiritual films are being made and want to encourage the development of that genre of films by supporting films like these, no matter how much they can be improved upon. I certainly wish that "CWG" would have been a much different movie or advertised more as a bio-pic than being an adaptation of the book series. The films "Peaceful Warrior" and "The Celestine Prophecy" were better done, but I still did walk away from the theater inspired by this film and it made me feel more compassionate towards homeless people, which Portland has a lot of, so it can't be all bad.

The difference between this movie and other spiritual films (The Secret, What the Bleep, Celestine Prophecy) is that this movie shows you how to be, what to do, and how to get to god. It demands that the spiritual walk is one of compassion and human commitment, and not one of manifesting a million dollars overnight or learning how to heal plants or move atoms with your mind. This very human message will come as a disappointment for some who are looking for a get-spiritual-quick scheme from this movie. This is not a film about spiritual giftedness, it is a film about walking your very human walk, dealing with the opportunities for compassion that we pass on our way to work every morning, and learning that every moment is an opporunity to live your own conversation with god.

This movie was very well done, and Henry Czerny is remarkable in it. There is one scene in particular, where Neale is at his lowest and just desperate, which moved me to tears. When you watch the movie, you'll know just which scene I'm referring to. Czerny is superb throughout this film, and in this poignant scene especially.

As I watched this DVD, my husband came in to the room to sit with me during the last 20 minutes of the film. He watched quietly, then asked me "WHAT movie is this?" I told him, and although I read the Conversations With God books years ago, my husband does not share the same areas of interest that I do, so he had never heard of them. I explained the background of books and the author to him.

He wanted to see the entire movie, (which was surprising to me since this movie doesn't have a single explosion or car chase in it) so the next night I watched it again, this time with him. When it was over, he asked me if I still have the books. "Of course!" (I'll have those books forever). He asked me if I would find them so he can read them.

Now, this is a man who was raised Catholic and has felt disconnected from the church for quite some time. Not from God, but from church. There is a difference. I can't help but wonder if this movie will bring an entire group of people to re-discover these books.
