The Book of Life

Time Out says

Hartley's typically wry, witty and inventive contribution to Haut et Court's Millennium series envisages Christ (Donovan) reluctantly sent by dad to NYC to supervise the Day of Judgment; meanwhile Satan (Ryan) hopes to put a stop to the Apocalypse, while continuing his quest for wayward souls. The plotting, the philosophical discussions and the playing are as enjoyable as ever, but what makes this Hartley film special is his invigorating use of digital video and experiments with sound and music.
