Beautiful film, great acting, 8 August 2007
Author: pyotr-3 from Washington DC

"Ordinary Sinner" is not a film I would have normally sought out. But I saw it on the Logo network while channel-surfing and gave it a chance. I am VERY glad I did! This is a quiet film. Nothing flashy, though the main character is a very beautiful man. The point of the film, however, is to show how things get out of hand with tragic results when someone gets a crazy idea in his head. This is something that we have all seen... a man gets a dumb idea in his head and it leads him to doing something horrible. Ordinary people can end up doing horrible things. Hence the title "Ordinary sinner." The heart of the movie is a priest who is a very godly man. He shows how religion can be used for good. A member of his congregation gets a crazy idea in his head, which leads him to do evil in the name of religion.

You can see that this is the perfect parable for today.

Brendan Hines is excellent as the young man who drops out of a seminary, who holds the entire movie together. His stunning good looks make the movie very enjoyable.

Peter Onorati is wonderful as a man who fiercely stands up to wrong, who attempts to bring justice in the end. Onorati is fantastic in this strong, passionate role.

A. Martinez is perfect as the Mexican priest around whose life the entire movie is centered. Martinez is a powerhouse actor, and he brings great depth to the role and to this movie.
