Sterling K. Brown and Regina Hall knock it out of the park in this acerbic comedy from first-time feature director Adamma Ebo. A modern-day, fictional film very much in the vein of ‘The Eyes of Tammy Faye’, it chronicles the fall and attempted rise of a disgraced Georgia megachurch preacher. Filmed in part as a faux documentary, it’s loaded with wry humor and wicked satire… until it’s not. The last third takes a sharp turn into more dramatic territory, undercutting the brilliance that had come before.

3/5 stars
