Jesus Camp was one of the first films I ever posted on a blog (it vanished from YouTube shortly afterwards, but it’s back now); at the time, all I wrote by way of introduction was “Probably the scariest film you’ll ever see”; it’s certainly a disturbing exposé of exploitation and intolerance, of tears and stolen youth in the name of closing the suicide bomber gap.
