In response to Black Monk...
3 February 2006 | by baruchandbenedictSee all my reviews

This was a wonderful film, but I will admit that I am not writing this review to extol its virtues. In fact, I am writing in response to the foulest review preceding mine, "A Romance in which Philosophies Clash" by BlackMonk.

BlackMonk, your review of Stealing Heaven was an outrageous atrocity for which you should never be forgiven. Were I a ranking member of the ecclesiastical hierarchy, I would surely have you excommunicated immediately, or at least prescribe a penance of the most merciless and puritanical nature. Your conception of the middle ages is antiquated, outmoded, and uneducated; Your understanding of Abelard's thought is baseless and retarded, and your sense of taste is all but nonexistent. It would be to the benefit of all IMDb readers if you would lay down your wretched pen and never cast judgment on another work of artistic merit for the rest of your cursed days.

I suggest, sir, that you henceforth adhere to a strict regimen of daily self-flagellation, in the hopes that it will instill some piety and love of Beauty and the Divine within you. Should this fail, deep reflection or self-imposed exile may be your only hope of redemption.

sincerely, CMK
