Duvall In Peak Form As Sinning Preacher

By The Spokesman-Review
 

From Boo Radley to his Oscar turn as a broken-down country singer, Robert Duvall has proven to be the great American actor. He is at his best in “The Apostle,” a film that he wrote and directed about the Pentecostal preacher Euliss “Sonny” Dewey who, caught up in the sins that torment him, seeks a new life as the Apostle E.F. The film is uneven, sometimes slow and awkward, sometimes precise and perceptive. But Duvall is never short of brilliant. , DataTimes ILLUSTRATION: Photo
