Marjoe

In this revealing documentary, Southern evangelist Marjoe Gortner allows the filmmakers to record him swindling people out of money. Raised to be a child preacher on the revival-tent circuit, Gortner made a small fortune for his parents. Later, he began preaching on his own in a lively, rock star-influenced style, but, since he lacked actual religious faith, money became his sole motivator. As he stages his final revival tour, Marjoe provides a rare glimpse inside the business of evangelism.
