A Pastor in Pennsylvania
"I enjoyed the movie very much. It was neat to see WYN again and to see him as a real, flesh and blood person. I am still in awe of the way he lives and the mission he has to touch people's hearts with the love and grace of God. I want to do the same, and sometimes the "church structure" makes the ministry seem regimented. Its just so neat that he has made this opportunity to live the life style as a simple and unencumbered person. I am in a very small congregation, and there is a lot of discussion around this area that small churches are a thing of the past and that one church - one pastor is from the 60's and no longer valid in 2011. That scares me because in my small church I am able to be more of Jesus' presence to the people and have a one-on-one personal relationship with those whom I serve; whereas people from larger congregations tell me that members do not have a close relationship with their pastor. I hear them saying they like the big church because they can walk in and walk out without any personal contact. But, I ask, wasn't Jesus about personal contact and a one-on-one connection with God? WYN epitomizes that concept in a very unique and profound way."
"Thank you very much for taking the time to make this movie. In many ways The Jesus Guy has re-awakened questions and concerns that empower me in my ministry, and I really appreciate the opportunity you gave me to know more about WYN and his calling."

Some say he’s “a kook.” Others, “a blessing from God.” Barefoot and clad in a white robe, he’s walked through 47 states [and 13 countries] on a 16-year mission that’s captured media attention from 20/20, Time and the Wall Street Journal. Yet who is this solitary figure who inspires faith – and attracts controversy?
Sean Tracey traces the enigmatic odyssey of the anonymous, barefoot preacher known as “The Jesus Guy.” With the intimacy of single-camera filmmaking, we walk in his steps as he encounters both skeptics and believers, changing them…for better, for worse, forever.
"What at first glance looks like little more than a novelty piece turns out to be a challenging profile of a confounding individual...which is why it sticks so well." -Warren Curry Entertainment Insiders
“Make no mistake, the title subject of this film does not think he's Jesus. We see him praised, and we see him criticized. But most importantly, we see that he's human." -Jay Cheel Film Critic for the Documentary Blog
"Once you've seen The Jesus Guy in this film, he'll stay in your mind forever. Unforgettable. Absolutely Unforgettable." -Albert Maysles Awarded by the National Society of Film Critics, International Documentary Association and Sundance Film Festival for his documentaries
"This is an enthralling subject and story. The intimacy and authenticity of The Jesus Guy's cinematography is bewitching and refreshing. You feel like you're right there with this unusual man as his life is unfolding." -Bill Butler, ASC Academy Award and Emmy Winning Cinematographer of Jaws, Grease, Rocky I, II, & IV, One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest, Biloxi Blues, and others
“It’s gotta be rough making a documentary on someone who refuses to give any personal details about himself…but when it is all said and done…you understand that he’s not a dangerous wacko.” -Eric Campos Contributing Editor for Film Threat
“It's both an ancient and a very modern tale -- a wandering evangelist comes to town and challenges local people with his words and his being. As with Robert Duvall's The Apostle, The Jesus Guy artfully takes us below the surface to explore what makes this charismatic preacher tick and why people react to him the way they do. Even non-religious viewers will be intrigued by these dramatic and intimate encounters.” -Fred Mogul W N Y C -- New York Public Radio Reporter and former TIME magazine reporter who wrote a feature article on The Jesus Guy
