Atom User Reviews for Russ Taff: I Still Believe
A brutally and beautifully honest life story. Hearing the old songs from "back in the day" was wonderful. The Taff family shared with us the redemptive work of a God who always loves His children . Russ and Tori have two beautiful daughters. May Russ continue to be an overcomer by the Blood of the Lamb and the Word of his testimony. James & Sherry Marshall ~ Miami, Florida
This is a story of a man’s and his family’s real battle with suppressed hurt and anger. We rarely see the internal pain that many people deal with, talented and gifted though they might be. There is grace, forgiveness, and healing that came come through the deepest trials of life, and this movie tells that story of redemption. Must see!
I’m so glad Russ and Tori were willing to be vulnerable in sharing their heartbreak, pain and healing . Everyone should see this.
Fantastic. It has to be available on DVD. Thank God Russ opened himself to do it. Everyone can learn from this story.
I have loved his music since the early 80's and his songs have ministered to me. Now hearing this story makes him seem so much more human and flawed like me. Thank you for sharing.
This is a life story narratated by Russ, Tori and other interviews. Different from other movies, where scenes are acted, this story uses real interviews and actual footage from past events. It’s a raw look at Russ behind the mask of a stage or public persona. Russ reveals a man genuinely broken, healed and freed through the redemption of Christ. It moves a bit slow at times but still a gripping story and testimony. Just as Russ’s music touched thousands, so too can his personal story. The words of his song still ring true—“The chain that seem to bind you serve only to remind you that they drop powerless behind you...” God still works through imperfect people with scars. .
So good to understand where his lyrics came from. His music got me through the darkest days...if he only knew.
A real life story of a true legend’s struggle with abuse and the affect it creates with self-worth and suppressing the hurt and shame.
Inspiring story of God's grace. Great music and powerful story.
Great movie! Russ and Tori Taff have always been favorites of ours. Hearing their honest account of their struggles was so touching.
What a picture of God's endless mercy, grace, and love. I just re-lived all my college days...when Russ was at his pinnacle. What courage for him to share his journey, despite the darkness that permeated his life. This is a must see.
Just a great wide open story of God's mercy and redemption is a man and woman's life. It took great courage to reveal all the faults and short-comings. Loved it. Hope to get a copy of it for my library.
It was a great mix of music, love story, highs, lows, etc. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.
Amazing true story of the love and grace of God for His children. Very emotional and inspiring.
Incredibly touching true story about real life and the courage to be transparent to find healing.
I know the Taffs personally and this is a true and honest story of Russ's battle. I'm so proud that Russ and Tori were willing to share their scars and let the world see it in order to help others.
Great movie. Good example of real problems people deal with.
It touched the deep places inside of me that needed more light- Thank you
The Russ Taff story is inspiring and a true example of how God loves us, never gives up on us, and is still in the business of healing people, lives and working miracles! Highly recommend it!
Great movie , love russ taff
An amazing testimony of how God never leaves us. He is always the light out of our darkness. Thank you Russ, as God has used your amazing voice to help light my darkness so many times in my life!❤️
So raw and real and genuine. Sheds light on so many painful issues in our families, and does not just give a quick easy fix.
I went expecting a nostalgic musical retrospective. Instead I saw Amazing Grace at work in the life of one of my childhood heroes. It was encouraging and inspiring. Definitely two hours well spent.
Loved it! I admire their faith, love and courage.
God is still alive and working in our lives.
Proves that God uses flawed people to accomplish His purposes. Millions inspired by Russ Taff's ministry while he was battling his own demons.
It demonstrates that we all live in a broken world. This is not a movie in the sense that the story is acted out - just told. Cannot be compared to "I Can Only Imagine"
Shows the power of God and His love and mercy for us. Also a beautiful love story.
Such a wonderful true story of God’s amazing grace!
Wonderful story of pain and restoration! We need more true life stories of the power of God and His grace in the lives of His children. Very moved by Russ' wife Tori, and her strength and love. Added delight was the interaction and music of Amy Grant and Steven Curtis Chapmen.
I grew up with Russ’s songs. We are all so very thankful that we have a High Priest who can sympathize with our every weakness. Russ’s life story is a demonstration of Christ made strong in our weakness, and Russ tells it with boldness. Praise the Lord! (BTW... my favorite of his many marvelous songs).
REAL. Real pain, Real addiction, Real talent, Real people, Real love by a Real Savior. “There is nothing too hard for God”
Russ and Tori's raw, transparent honesty makes this an ideal expose of alcoholism and abuse within society and issues that Christians too often wish to sweep under the rug, or just don't know how to deal with. Their respective honesty reflects the nitty gritty of what victims on both sides of alcoholism experience. Kudos to them both for their courage to do the film; and to the Gaither family for having loved Russ as they did.
Amazing story filled with heartbreak, addiction, pain, and voices of the past that was overcome by the power of God! God does not quit on us. I grew up with the Imperial's/Gaither music and I found myself smiling every time the songs were played. Thank you to the Taff family for sharing your story and the sharing of great music. Hugs
A wonderful, true life story of God’s Amazing Love and Grace for us all. The film shows us how patient Our God is in helping us be redeemed by His blood.. In our sin and in our shame He is there to pick us up and Love us with an everlasting Love.. Blessed is His Name!!!
Well done! A true look into the life of a man who loves God, but still has to over come his own demons. Filmed and edited well. I'll watch it again.
I had many favorite parts in this movie but the part that touched me the most was how the Christian community (that knew the truth) came around Russ Taff with prayer and love, without judgement. They realized their brother was in pain and rose up to support and help him the best way they knew how. And that was by not contributing to a tabloid headline! This is a real story of the power of love and forgiveness and one man's journey through depression and addiction. Climaxing to the truth and realization that Christ was with him every step of the way and never stopped loving him. Thank you Russ for being vulnerable and sharing your story. Love never fails. John 13:34-35
So glad Russ and Tori shared their story.
Heartbreaking to learn that the kind, fun, loving man I worked with during those years was so engulfed in pain. . . the ultimate love story--Russ, Tori, their family--only the God of Creation through His Son could set them free!!! Praise God Russ is finally free!!
Very good. Great testimony.
Very inspiring movie and I appreciate Russ and Tori for sharing their testimony.
Tremendous courage, and awesome Grace shown brightly in this inspiring story. This guy was beat down, yet kept fighting.
Loved this movie. Great story of overcoming. Thank you for telling it!!
What a great movie!!!!
a bit too long...maybe by about 20 minutes...but was an inspiration for belief in Jesus power!!
Inspiring and very moving story about Russ Taff’s life, marriage, and how he found true peace and healing for his soul through his faith in God. Wonderful movie!
People were sobbing in the theater and it's been a long time since I've been to a movie where no one got up until all the credits were finished
very powerful and honest story that touched my family.
Incredible! My wife and I sincerely enjoyed this powerful, true story.
