If documentaries count, Bill Maher's Religulous is a hoot.

The Jonestown documentary was good as well. "Frailty" is kinda hard to watch but very educational on obsessive compulsive religiosity and how dangerous it can be. But is is just a fictional story. So keep that in mind.

I haven't seen that one. Thought about it, but Mel Gibson as christ didn't turn me on.

Anytime Mel Gibson gets the shit beat out of him, I'm on board. But to be fair, he doesn't actually play the Christ.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

I do like Bill Maher. Very educated informed and honest individual.
