"Part docu-diary, part theological quest, part family therapy session and part improvised comedy, Caveh Zahedi's second feature, "I Don't Hate Las Vegas Anymore," is a one-of-a-kind talkfest that's as compelling as it is abrasive. Infectiously funny, morally questionable and excruciatingly egocentric, this elaborate home movie stands to cleave any audience neatly down the middle."
The film follows Caveh Zahedi on a road trip to Las Vegas with his father and half-brother in an attempt to prove the existence of God. He suggests that if God exists, and if God is indeed omniscient, omnipotent and omnibenevolent, then all the filmmaker has to do is roll the camera and let God direct the movie. In an attempt "to force God's hand" and change the direction of the film, Zahedi tries to persuade his father and half-brother to take Ecstasy with him. When they refuse, things quickly start to unravel.
