Synopsis

Does hell exist? If so, who ends up there, and why? Featuring an eclectic group of authors, theologians, pastors, social commentators and musicians, HELLBOUND? is a provocative, feature-length documentary that looks at why we are so bound to the idea of hell and how our beliefs about hell affect the world we are creating today.

Looks interesting, though I doubt the Orthodox view of hell brought up... Sad

I find the juxtaposition of hell and apple hilarious and accurate.

I'm probably going to go to Hell. I don't think God likes a wisecrack.

Interview with the filmmaker behind Hellbound?:

Quote
Hellbound? opens and closes with scenes from 9/11—why did you choose this event as the framing context for your film?

When we're talking about hell, what we're really talking about is justice. Everyone recognizes that we live in a world full of evil, pain, and suffering, made worse by the fact that we are powerless to undo much of the destruction we cause. We can repair damaged property, but we can't bring people back to life. And even though we can soothe psychological and emotional wounds caused by traumatic events, we can't ever bring people to full healing. So it's only natural to cry out for supernatural intervention. If we can't make things right, maybe God can. And if God is good, he has to make things right. But what does that look like? How is God's justice like our justice? How is it different?

Archbishop Lazar is perfect for this movie.

I disagree with a lot of what he says, especially the lack of tact he often displays regarding "outing" gay clergy, and his volatile e-temper.

But he is really perfect to represent the EO view of Hell in soundbites. If you all have ever listened to his talks on the subject, I think you'll agree.
