There was a movie about a white male who was like a false prophet or something and he had all of these women following him. Long story short in one scene he stabbed one of the women's hand to a table with a knife and ends up cutting it off completely later on. He goes on trial in the end and while he walks out he sticks his tongue out at a woman who was investigating throughout the movie. What is the name of this movie?

maybe from the early 2000's
