He starts his own new Church of Truth, without the crucified Jesus, his first disciple being an 18-year old simpleton with a 'prophetic gift'... Written by KGF Vissers

Watch Wise Blood - Alternative Versions.
I finally saw this movie. Had to get it on loan through the inter-library
loaning service. I liked it very much. It was pretty faithful to Flannery
O'Connor's story. John Houston and the cast deserve accolades for bringing
this story, that can be elusive when trying to figure out what is going
to the screen. And from some of the viewer's comments, I can see how
difficult it is to understand. I sent some e-mails of my views to some of
the reviewer's of this movie.
Any review of "Wise Blood" must be done in the context of the book. The
ball and crazy characters we see all have a purpose. The hypocracy of
religion is only a tool. Many of us at some point have seen some of the
characters; the odd balls, the charlatans. Ned Beatty is magnificent in
almost a cameo role for him.
There is a tool in writing called "use of the grotesque" and some have
called it "Southern grotesque". Referencing that most of the strange
characters come from the South. But whether that is true or not, it did
provide a source for Flannery O'Connor's books and stories.
It has been written that her stories and books are narrow, because they
with Christianity and in particular with people in crisis and how these
people go about resolving their crisis. But her stories are well-crafted
"full of insight about human weakness".
Hazel Motes crisis was trying to build a church of Christ without Christ
this led him down a path he could not resolve in his mind. Everywhere he
turned, his church and ultimately he was rejected. I believe(I use these
words because this is my interpretation) Hazel finally realizes that if
his attempts have failed then there is a Jesus. And Hazel being a prophet
now must suffer like a prophet. The rest is his own doing his atonement
sinning. There was one small part in the book left out of the movie. When
the police go to find Hazel, one of the policemen hits him with his night
stick. I think of Christ being stabbed on the cross by a Roman Soldier,
the policeman hits Hazel. Also in the movie there is not enough emphasis
the Landlady's change. When she first starts taking care O hazel after he
blinds himself, she is interested in his money(not explained well in the
movie). After he leaves her and goes out in the rain storm, she is fearful
he will get sick, and when he comes back not realizing he is dead, tells
it is okay. He can stay upstairs or not. He can do what he wants. She has
experienced a return to grace.
There is a collection of Mary O'Connor's writings and lectures she gave
called "Mystery and Manners" edited by her good friend Sally Fitzgerald.
There is a lot of material that helps to explain her writing.
I wish I could explain more about Flannery O'connor, but I am glad I can
read her and glad that John Houston made "Wise Blood" into a
