I love s good documentary about a cult, and the Children of God always sparked my interest . But this documentary made in 1994 has the feel of a educational film in the 50's. I wanted to know this family and their psychic struggles in cult life and leaving. We never hear from the father of the family or the sons, and we get no sense of how these folks were seduced into this cult. When the mother left the cult, what happened to her other children. One does not leave a cult without severe psychic damage- PTSD,. This mother left and joined a charismatic church and seems to have no problems? How do leave a cult with 3 daughters and reclaim a life. There is no real explanation on how this cult claims to be Christian, yet the Bible is not taught .
Don't waste your time on this dated film which would have been dated in 1994. Very little clarity on Moses Davis the cult leader. I left the film feeling like this family may have left the formality of the cult but got no help in joining society, especially the mother who shows no emotion even over her dead daughter.
