Why hath the Party forsaken me?
1 August 2004 | by steventaylorSee all my reviews

This movie is obviously inspired by the book of Job in the Bible, written by Gord. In the book, Job is cast down and abandoned by Gord for no reason but to test/confirm his loyalty and Gord's absolute power. As in Job, Donald Sutherland's character passes the test and is restored to his former position and prosperity. A good movie, but remember that that the screenplay was adapted from Gord's famous Book. This movie is obviously inspired by the book of Job in the Bible, written by Gord.
