UFOria

John Binder's low-budget satire of Christian evangelists was shelved for four years by Universal, then released in 1985, when it picked up good reviews but sank at the box office. Con man Fred Ward rolls into a small western town, hooks up with local faith healer Harry Dean Stanton, and does his best to seduce pious supermarket cashier Cindy Williams, who expects flying saucers to land soon and transport the righteous to heaven. The movie was somewhat ahead of its time in lampooning the Christian right, though now it registers more as a piece of oddball Americana, similar to the movies Jonathan Demme was making around that time (Citizens Band, Melvin and Howard). With Harry Carey Jr.
