Not Seidl at his best, but interesting
20 January 2006 | by (Hawaii) – See all my reviews

Another good documentary from Ulrich Seidl, but i didn't like it as much as his others. Definitely there were some great moments, but ultimately i don't think the concept could quite sustain itself properly. The idea of a film in which Christian fanatics say their prayers out loud in front of a camera is interesting, but really doesn't work that well cinematically. It just visually isn't interesting or engaging at all. It's pretty tedious, actually, even though the things they say are sometimes (more often than not, actually) interesting or entertaining, in that distinctively funny-and-sad way that Seidl has perfected in his other films. For what it is though, he pulled it off as well as possible, wisely keeping it pretty short.
