Vintage Saints and Sinners by Karen Wright Marsh, Free for CAPC Members
In Vintage Saints and Sinners, Karen Wright Marsh manages to emphasize the vast goodness of spiritual giants while also humanizing them.
What makes cults so boundlessly attractive to cult followers and so immediately unnerving for the rest of us? That’s just one of the questions raised by Netflix’s new documentary miniseries Wild Wild Country, which tries to get to the bottom of a 1980s dispute between a religious commune and the Oregon community next door. Also on deck this week is the Nick Offerman-starring Hearts Beat Loud, a feel-good indie movie about a dad trying to get the band back together with his college-bound daughter.
