Product Description

'Ragamuffin' is based on the life of Rich Mullins, a musical prodigy who rose to Christian music fame and fortune only to walk away and live on a Navajo reservation. An artistic genius, raised on a tree farm in Indiana by a callous father, Rich wrestled all of his life with the brokenness and crippling insecurity born of his childhood. A lover of Jesus and a rebel in the church, Rich refused to let his struggles with his own darkness tear him away from a God he was determined to love. As he struggled with success in Nashville and depression in Wichita, Rich desired most of all to live a life of honest and reckless faith amidst a culture of religion and conformity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not your mama's "Christian movie!" Powerful! May 14, 2014
Format:DVD
Disclaimer: Rich Mullins, the subject of the movie “Ragamuffin” was my best friend, brother and companion for 2 decades. My character, the short mouthy blonde is accurately portrayed in the beginning of the movie. (smile)
That said, I think if you are interested in a review of a bio pic, you just might be interested in the opinion of someone who actually knew the man.
Rich Mullins was a successful Contemporary Christian musician, probably best remembered as the writer/singer of the worship anthem “Awesome God”. He was known as the quirky, beloved poet of his industry, coming to concerts barefoot and giving away much of his considerable wealth to the poor. David Leo Schultz and his crew from Color Green Films could have made an endearing little movie where all is well and the hero is shiny and perfect in the current fashion of the genre of faith based films.
But Rich wasn’t perfect and it was his imperfection that drew Schultz to produce an authentic movie about a broken man who authentically loved God.
Ragamuffin portrays the story of Rich from his young life on a farm in rural Indiana to his death in a car accident in September of 1997. While music and the struggles of fame are major ingredients in the story, the universal storyline for me is the unresolved relationship between Rich and his father, John. (Truly, can you name 10 people in your life who do not have strained relationships with their fathers, either deceased or alive? Maybe 5?) This is the heart of the story-what people do when they believe in their hearts that they are “not enough”.
Enter the true hero of the story, author and speaker, Brennan Manning.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you listened, you'd understand May 18, 2014
Format:DVD
I will review the movie, but I have to share a story first. Bear with me.

I was getting ready for church Sunday morning, September 20, 1997, when my sister burst into my room and yelled, "Rich Mullins was killed in a car crash!" I stared at her. "That's not funny," I said flatly. "No, really, it's on the radio!" And then she saw my face and realized that might not have been the best way to break the news to me, considering what a fan I was. So she left my room.
Getting through church that morning was hard, because I wanted to grieve, but I also had a lot of guilt. I'm at church to focus on God, not cry over some singer that I didn't even know that died. I'd been taught/told that the interests I had (movies, music, etc) were silly, trivial, dumb, what have you, and it would be wrong to cry over him. But I wanted to, because he was more than "some singer" to me. When the congregation recited The Apostle's Creed, I could only say it in my head, not out loud, because all I could hear was Rich singing, "I believe what I believe/Is what makes me what I am". And I thought, "Are you singing your song with the angels today, Rich?"
Finally service let out, I got in the car with my sister, and I sobbed and sobbed. I finally calmed down enough to start the car, and of course the Christian radio station was playing Rich's music. The song, "All the Way My Savior Leads Me" (words not by him, but his arrangement and recording) just finished, and the DJ said, "If some of you are having a hard time dealing with this tragedy, there's a book you can read called 'Why Bad Things Happen To Good People'."
I shut off the radio and started swearing and yelling at it.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the finest May 14, 2014
Format:DVD
This is, very simply, one of the finest movies about faith, grace, and forgiveness that I have ever seen. Rich was a man of faith, a man who struggled openly and honestly with his brokenness and who lived and spoke powerfully about the mercy and tenderness of God. The move has impacted me, as well as many of my friends. I'm a Christian mental health counselor, and have begun using it in small groups within my practice. The film itself changes lives, and the discussions it prompts leads folks to even greater change. I can't tell you how many times I've heard people say, "When I watched that, I saw me, and I saw God much more clearly. I could not recommend Ragamuffin more highly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprised by how good it was May 14, 2014
Format:DVD
Knowing the shoe-string budget that funded this film, I was not hopeful that it would be well done. I was prepared for a lot of cring-worthy performances and a simple-minded plotline. I was very wrong. The characters were believable and the story drew you in from the beginning. I loved it and will be purchasing it for gifts for family members this year (shh....dont tell!) : )

5.0 out of 5 stars The Heart of Rich May 14, 2014
Format:DVD
This movie portrayed so well the heartbeat of Rich Mullins, the grace of Jesus Christ. He lived a life that was flawed and passionate and reckless, like his music, and this movie shows how Rich fell on the grace of God and embraced it. The movie is supported by Rich's own brother and many of his old friends so that adds a stamp of approval for me. As one who has been deeply touched by his music for years, I was so happy to finally see a story about his life. I highly recommend it. Yes it is gritty, yes parts are dark, but that adds a touch of realism to the movie that rings true. Get this movie!
