RAGAMUFFIN is based on the true story of Rich Mullins, a musical prodigy who rose to Christian music fame and fortune only to walk away and live on a Navajo reservation. An artistic genius raised on a tree farm in Indiana by a weathered, callous father, Rich wrestled all of his life with the brokenness and crippling insecurity born of his childhood. A lover of Jesus and a rebel in the church, Rich refused to let his struggles with alcoholism, addiction and women tear him away from a God he was determined to love. As he struggled with success in Nashville, depression in Wichita, and oblivion in the Four Corners, Rich became one of the first of his time to live honestly amidst a culture of religion and conformity.

Paul S (br) wrote: This has many good jokes and gags. I like Adam's performance in this one. I like the concept of the story, but I don't feel that it was well executed. John Turturro's performance stands out as very memorable and funny. Wynona's performance can best be described as phony. There's a certain giggly annoying way that lots of women act like, and I think it's positively phony. Some women act like normal people and don't do the phony giggly annoying thing, but not Wynona. I've seen her act more normally but not in this. This is pretty harsh, but she way over acted her role at many moments. It's so phony that it makes me realize that it's just a movie and I can't suspend in disbelief to enjoy it. I saw this a long time ago but couldn't remember any of it. I wanted to watch it again and I'm glad I did, but that is probably the last time. The last annoyance was getting sent the DVD with no widescreen format. I had to watch it in 4:3 which is totally LAME!

Wiest and Tilly, obtained two Oscar nominations and Wiest was the final winner, who is divinely lofty and my pick as well, she is simply amazing in her delivering of the repetitive don(TM)t speak? lines and the voice warmup scenes before the final premier. Meanwhile Tilly is plainly acting herself (being slightly amusing and largely annoying), this is an exact example of the disparagement between a bona fide actress and an one-off sensation (Palminteri(TM)s Oscar nomination may also belong to be the latter unfortunately), notwithstanding the fact that most acting labourers will never even procure such an opportunity, for instance John Cusack, who is playing Woody Allen in the film and is reliably superb but regrettably snubbed again (after THE GRIFTERS 1990, a 7/10). Speaking of the film, the script has Woody(TM)s distinctive bourgeoise and artist self-mockery in it and the genre mashup of gangster comedy and a broadway playwright trapped in his writer(TM)s block works adroitly well, although the shooting shots are not Woody(TM)s strong suit and the diamond-in-the-rough deployment is over-simplified (maybe there is just no reason beyond it). But on the whole, the witty conversations will always strike a chord if you are an ordinary man with a highbrow heart, and in the final analysis, Diane Wiest alone is worth the time.
