Worlds Greatest Sinner

Best movie never released.... IMHO. Music by an early Zappa and Tim Carey's acting is brilliant. Most people hate it but I think it rocks.
Insurance salesman Clarence Hilliard denies the existence of any supernatural deity and proclaims himself God. Forming the Eternal Man Party, he becomes a rock and roll evangelist to gather converts to his cause, among them an elderly woman who agrees to finance his activities. He enters politics, but begins to doubt himself when his mother dies and his wife and daughter leave him. After violating a religious object he has stolen from a church, Hilliard challenges God to reveal himself. A miracle proves Hilliard's human fallibility, and he repents.

I hope it is released on DVD someday. I've only seen it once.....
