Richard Dutcher's Films Are on Amazon's Prime Video

God's Army, Brigham City, and States of Grace are now included with an Amazon Prime subscription. I hope Falling eventually gets added as well. I've been wanting to see that for ages.

There are some amusing reviews by people who didn't realize that these films were "Mormon propaganda."

I'm still a fan of States of Grace especially, even if I never really bought the final scene.

I have not seen State of Grace.

I remember thinking that God's Army was a must see for any pre-mission kid. If nothing else than because it was way more realistic about mission life any all of the church produced films on missions. It showed that missions can suck and can be very f---ed up.

It has been nearly a couple decades since I watched it. It would be interesting to look at it with ex-mo eyes to see what more life experience says.

"God's Army" was produced back when Dutcher was still a believer. I have never seen it, but I recall that believers largely liked it. I probably should watch it and see how my heathen eyes see it.

God's Army has a character that some at NOM might relate to, a questioning missionary.

States of Grace is a movie that I've recommended many times to people at church. I have always appreciated how it's edgy enough to be interesting but also includes things such as a literal application of a Book of Mormon story. I think that semi or former believers who aren't totally averse to all things Mormon might enjoy it.
