There are two films at war in “Least Amongst Saints,” and neither is very compelling. The first is a faith-forward feature about redemptive spirits, where Anthony (writer/director Martin Papazian) attempts to pull himself out of a PTSD funk fueled by alcohol and bad decisions upon his return from the Middle East. The soft-gauze photography, flat storytelling and overt moralizing suggests a product straight from the Bible Belt, and even the soundtrack, both pop and orchestral, leans towards the churchy.

While Martin Papazian may not be a household name yet, he's quietly been building up a resume that includes stints on "Supernatural," "Dexter" and "24" with an appearance in this summer's "The Amazing Spider-Man" as well. But sometimes if you want to get a meaty, leading role you have to make the magic happen yourself, and that's just what he's done as writer, director and star of his feature helming debut "Least Among Saints."
