Critics reviews

God Told Me To is a film of contrasts, most notably between queer and straight, male and female, righteousness and blasphemy, heaven and hell, hope and hopelessness, repression and progression, and law and anarchy. The commonality shared by most of those pairings is the conflict between the chaos of desire and the need, or even the requirement, to contain unruly impulses so as to fit in with a greater community.
