Preceding the controversy of Morgan Spurlock’s corporate sponsor funded POM Wonderful Presents: the Greatest Movie Ever Sold, What Would Jesus Buy? gives us Reverend Billy and the Church of Stop Shopping Gospel Choir lifting their voices in favor of cutting back holiday spending. Director Rob VanAlkemade and Producer Morgan Spurlock follow the group on a cross-country mission to save the holidays from the Shopocalypse: the end of humankind from consumerism, over-consumption and the fires of eternal debt. This is a humorous, thought-provoking film about how and why we spend money.
Support documentaries! What Would Jesus Buy? can been enjoyed on DVD or Netflix streaming.
