From our review at Sundance last year.
In Leap of Faith: William Friedkin on The Exorcist Friedkin opens up about one of his greatest achievements as a director and in ways his most costly... Leap of Faith is a densely packed burst of information and recollection from the mind behind The Exorcist movie... It flows like a stream of consciousness, so much so that we watched it three times before deciding on what we were going to focus on here... There is no need to bring in experts or enthusiasts for their opinions. The only opinion that matters here is the opinion of the films creator.
The trailer is below, with a small selection of stills.
