Gods Angry Man is a 1981 documentary film about Gene Scott, directed by Werner Herzog. The film was produced for television. The German title Glaube und Wahrung translates as Faith and Currency.

The film consists of footage of Scott on the set of his television program Festival of Faith and interviews with Scott and Scotts parents conducted by Herzog. The footage from Scotts television program focuses almost exclusively on his fundraising efforts and an elaborate rant against the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Scott at one point refuses to speak until his viewers pledge an additional $600. After several minutes of silence, he yells angrily at the camera until a production assistant informs him that they have received $700. Scott represents the FCC on his show by a cymbal-banging monkey toy.
