"Salvation Boulevard" starring Greg Kinnear a fun mix of religion, mystery and corruption

Pierce Brosnan, James Bond, is a megapastor.  Greg Kinnear is a man who witnesses his pastor (Brosnan) commit a crime.   The film, from there, becomes a fun romp through our world today and the role religion plays in it.  The Wall Street Journal comments about the filmmaker George Ratliff:

“It’s an obsession, much to my wife’s chagrin,” says the Texas-born filmmaker. “I promised her I wouldn’t do another religious movie after this, to avoid the box set. But never say never.”

Based on the novel by Larry Beinhart, “Salvation Boulevard” stars Greg Kinnear as Carl, a former Deadhead who has traded in Jerry Garcia for God. He accidentally witnesses Pastor Dan (Pierce Brosnan), the leader of his new megachurch, commit a crime, and spends the rest of the film trying to make peace with his family, an atheist professor and a fellow Deadhead-turned security guard.
