Corpus Christi | Ratings & Reviews

"Neither a parable nor an allegory, yet image after image seems charged with intent, from the opening shot... to the climax, an apocalyptic welter of fire and blood."

The New YorkerThe New Yorker

"It's within the murky realm of self-doubt and spiritual anxiety that it's at its most audacious and compelling."

Slant MagazineSlant Magazine

"Shot in a grim, desaturated palette, this Polish film, directed by Jan Komasa, addresses big issues of conscience and morality."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"It deviates enough from formula-especially in its arresting ending, which takes full advantage of Bielenia's haunted visage-to be worth seeing."

A.V. ClubA.V. Club

"This is a movie that wants you to think about what redemption really means. And it has a lead... [that's] your new Hot Priest, Eastern European Division."

Rolling StoneRolling Stone

"Directed by Jan Komasa in only his third feature and starring a complexly compelling Bartosz Bielenia, this is a blistering drama, intense, disturbing and inescapably thought-provoking, a film that gets its power from a merging of potent opposites."

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"A quite interesting and irresistible movie, a sort of cross between Paul Schrader's recent film of spiritual crisis, "First Reformed," and Spielberg's "Catch Me If You Can.""

San Francisco ChronicleSan Francisco Chronicle

"It's Shane, with more vodka and fewer horses. It's as Polish as a cabbage roll, yet startlingly universal."

Sydney Morning HeraldSydney Morning Herald

"There's visual command and a compelling intimacy to the storytelling, plus intellectual engagement in the reflection on who gets to claim nearness to God."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"Often moving but also disquieting and even intermittently funny, this drama unfurls a spiritual parable that is uniquely Polish but accessible to all."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"The film is an important one, but above all, it is an exceptionally pleasing and easy one to watch despite its density."
