Too much pride, too little faith. Lucifer falls 12/25/06


Second in command to God, Lucifer's pride takes over, as he sets out to dethrone the almighty.

The war in heaven erupts, and God must watch one third of his angels fall, along with what used to be his greatest angel. Scorsese sets his heaven in a bright futuristic downtown city-like atmosphere.
