The Rapture (1991)
There are plenty of cinematic visions of the world ending via robots, zombies, environmental catastrophes or disease, but very few of the world ending according to the Christian concept of the rapture. Evangelicals can keep those Kirk Cameron "Left Behind" movies to themselves, the most provocative and unshakeable depiction of the rapture on film to date is Michael Tolkin's 1991 indie starring Mimi Rogers as a swinger turned born again Christian. Wrestling with heady concepts of faith and devotion, the film serves up a complex portrait of a woman facing the end times. Rogers has never been better, a pre-"X-Files" David Duchovny impresses as her lusty lover and Tolkin doesn't preach answers, he simply asks probing questions.
