Meet Mayhew, protagonist of Pete Duval's "Strange Mercies." Once upon a time in a faraway, Spanish-speaking land, Mayhew has a job to do: document via videotape a young woman whose Christ-like wounds bleed on cue and without scientific explanation, whose street-preacher performances might be exposed as trickery or recorded as real, a mystery we can't explain away, "Strange Mercies" evokes a world of staggering heat and blinding midday light, a world of stray dogs and curlews, "their song beautiful beyond description." From this world something miraculous is made: a modern parable that feels channeled from the ghosts of Fyodor Dostoevsky and John of Patmos.
