The ‘Low’-Down on Robert Duvall

Good, insightful interview with Duvall in Christianity Today. He accurately takes to task stereotypical Hollywood attitudes towards Christians and average Americans while discussing his great movie The Apostle, as well as discussing his new film Get Low.

“If Hollywood had done this, they would have mocked these people. No, I did not mock these people. I didn’t patronize these people. I’ve been in many, many churches, Pentecostal churches. I could have made these people look bad if I wanted to. So you can tell these people I did not mock these people or condescend at all. Had I done it in a Hollywood movie, we would have patronized these people. That’s why I had to do the movie myself.”
