Faith-offending films “Falling”

Hollywood and organized religion seem to be in a perpetual game of whack-a-mole. Just when the ire generated by one film has died down, anger from a different denomination flames up for a different studio.

In 2007, Catholic groups were up in arms over New Line Cinema’s “The Golden Compass.” By late spring of 2008, it was a Hindu group battling Paramount pictures over the perceived slighting of the Hindu faith in the Mike Myers comedy “The Love Guru.”

Meanwhile, “Falling” (pictured), the first post-Mormon film from writer-director Richard Dutcher, faced an uncertain reception from the community that once embraced his films.

“Falling,” “The Golden Compass” and “The Love Guru” are far from the first films to be greeted with stern disapproval from the faithful. In fact, just about every world religion has been up in arms over a movie.
