Product Description

What Is God? In every corner of the world, there is one question that can never be definitively answered, yet stirs up equal parts passion, curiosity, self-reflection, and often wild imagination: What is God? Filmmaker Peter Rodger explores this profound, age-old query in the provocative nonfiction feature film OH MY GOD. Frustrated with religious turmoil, fanaticism, and fundamentalism, he set out on a global quest to understand why the concept of God has become politicized. The result is a stunningly beautiful film featuring inviting faces and personalities who are a touching reminder of the melting pot that we call humanity . . . and the mystery that we have given many names. Featuring: Hugh Jackman, Seal, Ringo Starr, Sir Bob Geldof, HRH Princess Michael of Kent, David Copperfield, Dr. John F. Demartini, Jack Thompson, and more. A significant portion of any proceeds generated by this DVD will be donated to World Charities.

Peter Rodger's odyssey took him to 23 countries where he asked people from all walks of life, "What is God?" His thoughtful and provocative documentary is built around one of the fundamental questions we humans ask ourselves - even if we dismiss the notion of anything beyond the here and now (whatever that is).

Beautifully photographed and edited, the smorgasbord of images and words and music is a thoughtful meditation around the greater idea of transcendence itself. It must be acknowledged that we exist not of our own doing. The why and the how are ALL speculation, no matter how strongly you think you know the origins of life and consciousness.
Some of us even hear a voice that we assume is God's.

In 2003, the leader of the free world told the BBC that he raided Iraq because God told him to.
In some primal way, we seem to be wired to embrace the mystery - and perhaps that is the essence that makes faith itself the biggest miracle of all.
I liked the mostly short comments by the disparate members of our human family - the dismissive and the devout.

A bonus disc includes an additional three hours of full-length interviews with Hugh Jackman, Ringo Starr, HRH Princess Michael of Kent, Sir Bob Geldof, David Copperfield and others.
Fighting about God's identity, name and nature is destroying our world. I liked the aboriginal elder, who says, "When Christian missionaries came to tell us about God, they broke all the Ten Commandments."

I was heartened to see and hear Ringo Starr still insist that, finally, it really is all about love. One is reminded that the essence of all the great religions, including the message of Jesus, is: "Love your neighbor." That idea could still change the world. Perhaps God waits, bound by the rules of free will, for His kingdom to be perceived and made real. Whether you believe or not.

***1/2

Sometimes it seems as if there are as many concepts of God as there are people on the planet. And if there really is just one true God, why do people have such a widely varied and often contradictory view of Him/Her/It?

Curious about this phenomenon, filmmaker Peter Rodger set out on a tour of the world to try to find some answers to some age-old questions: does God exist, and, if he does, what is He like, why does He allow suffering, and why do people often hate and kill one another in His name? Rodger's journey takes him to places as widely disparate as Texas, New Orleans, India, Australia, Bali, Tibet, Kenya, Mexico, Guatemala, Japan, the politically-charged Middle East, and even what appears to be a Jihadist hideout or training camp. The result is "Oh My God," an interesting, though less-than-penetrating, documentary that provides a panoramic view of religion and faith-based belief systems across the planet.

Rodger interviews religious figures, charity workers, celebrities - Hugh Jackman, David Copperfield, Baz Luhrman, Seal, Ringo Starr, among them - and just plain folk from all walks of life and belief systems. He speaks with Catholics, Protestants, fundamentalist Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, Native Americans, Australian aborigines, Druids, agnostics, atheists - you name it, he covers pretty much the entire spectrum of faiths (and non-faiths) that exist in the world today (and a few, like the Mayans,' that long ago faded into the fog of history).

One of the things Rodger discovers is that religion is often just a form of tribalism wherein different groups fight against one another for power and gain - which may account for why humans seem obsessed with the "my god can beat up your god" line of thinking.

This gives a very good, thorough, balanced look at religion around the world. It creates an understanding of what others believe, and why they believe it. This was very well done, and beautifully presented. I wholeheartedly recommend this to anyone with an open mind, and open heart.

So... I bought this having watched Hugh Jackman's inspirational ENTIRE interview on youtube from the dvd. I thought, my gosh, this is GREAT, having an in depth conversation with people about their beliefs/ideas about God, seeing as I am trying to become more spiritually enlightened. So I thought the DVD would be like that. NOT AT ALL. The DVD is pretty much a mix of athiests and believers (I liked that aspect, because I believe every opinion should be shown) but its really just a quick succession, like 10 seconds from each person and then some footage from poverty stricken areas with "inspirational music" tied into it. It reminded me a lot of those late night evangelists commercials that show poverty stricken areas with the bad vo's. Back to this DVD though, I would SKIP and instead youtube "Hugh Jackman's Oh my God interview" What he has to say is BY FAR more profound than anything listed on the dvd, so if you are seeking spiritually enlightenment or just to see what other people have to say about their beliefs, YOUTUBE it instead and save the 20 bucks. Hope this helps!

I really loved seeing a wide range of cultures and faiths answering "What is God?"

Of course the celebrities were also very interesting. It was great watching all the extended interviews.

I found David Coperfield's response particularly thoughtful as he is a professional illusionist.
