Great Movie Moments: ‘The Apostle’ — Billy Bob Thornton Wants to Bulldoze a Church

posted by Nell Minow

As I wrote earlier, my new book, which should be out by the end of the year, is about some of my favorite movie moments.  I’m having a lot of fun writing about them but one thing I can’t do in a book is post the clips, so I’m going to post some of them here.  This is from “The Apostle.”  Robert Duvall wrote, directed, and stars in the story of a flawed man of faith who starts a church in a poor community.  In this scene, Billy Bob Thornton’s character, who is offended by a church with both black and white worshippers, arrives with a bulldozer to knock the church down.
