Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Americans, according to Reverend Billy, lead fake lives: we gobble up the mono-culture peddled by transnational conglomerates; we buy whatever stores sell us; and, consequently, we live consumerist fictions. We become, in his words, tourists in our own lives.

Dietmar Post s REVEREND BILLY & THE CHURCH OF STOP SHOPPING focuses on Reverend Billy (NYC performance artist Bill Talens) and his devout group of disciples as they crusade against the synthetic and corruptive aspects of today s hyper-consumerist culture. Talens tirelessly labors to organize actions ranging from choir-singing protests to rooftop speeches that urge people to stop shopping and to realize the threat lurking beneath the veneer of commodification. Concerned with how transnational corporations colonize our mental-scapes and destroy local neighborhoods, the charismatic preacher thrives on staging infiltrations of the Disney Store or boycotts of Starbuck s, even if it means frequent run-ins with the NYPD.

In the style of Direct Cinema, filmmakers Dietmar Post and Lucia Palacios expertly observe - without interruption - Reverend Billy in action and confrontation. As a result, the most rewarding aspect of REVEREND BILLY & THE CHURCH OF STOP SHOPPING is its proficiency in accessing Talens truly human side his humor, self-deprecation, and intelligence which in turn reveals what is genuinely empowering and inspiring about the man and his mission.

Trailer to the film "Reverend Billy & The Church of Stop Shopping". A must see documentary for all people who are interested in the anti-globalization movement. I especially enjoyed the crucified Mickey and Minnie.

5.0 out of 5 stars May the Rev. Billy's message be heeded! January 30, 2010
Format:DVD
This video highlights the enormous courage & moral fortitude of these good people & their message of how through shopping at their corporate stores we are forever changing the economic landscape of America. We are shopping ourselves right into economic collapse. Amen! Rev. Billy! Amen! A Real Class Act, peppered with a great comedic sensibility!
