I bought the DVD of The God That Wasn't There and didn't think much of it as a documentary. I had hoped to see a more scholarly explanation of the nonexistence of Jesus. The life of Jesus section was amusing and well edited but I felt there needed to be more interviews with scholars to address the FAQ about Jesus' existence. Also, I get that some Catholics really get off on the crucifixion but it went on too long and seemed beside the point of the film. I was also very uncomfortable with the filmmakers ambush of his old school principal. It really seemed like he set the guy up under false pretenses about he purpose of the film.
There was lots to like, and I haven't seen all the extras. As an atheist I want to support such efforts but I can't help thinking that this film is not going change many minds. Am I being too critical?
