Legendary film director John Huston creates one of his most cerebral films that will stay with the viewer for a long time. Set in the American Deep South during the post-war era, Wise Blood stars Brad Dourif as Hazel Motes, an unhinged and aimless war-veteran, who decides to become a Bible-thumping preacher for a quasi-religious cult called The Church Without Christ'. Linking up with a fraudulent hustler from hellfire-and-brimstone preaching circuit - who pretends to be blind for the assembled believers - Motes is put under pressure by the fraudster to blind himself... for real so that he can truly see the light'. A dark satire on religious movements that, beautifully acted by Dourif, Huston and William Hickey. [show more]

John Huston directs this offbeat and darkly comedic drama set in the American Deep South in the post-war era, adapted from the 1952 novel by Flannery O'Connor. Brad Dourif stars as Hazel Motes, an ambitious but uneducated war veteran who, in his twisted quest for salvation, attempts to become a travelling preacher and sets up the Church of Truth Without Christ. Along the spiritual path he meets a bizarre assortment of unsavoury characters including hellfire-and-brimstone street preacher Asa Hawks (Harry Dean Stanton).
