Storyline

Is religion the opiate of the people, or something darker? A pilgrim happens on an unfinished cathedral, with Gothic vaults and Gaudiesque echoes, poised on the edge of a cliff. As he walks through, statuary appears, and these figures hold the key to the essence of religion. Do insight and discovery await the pilgrim? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Goofs

When the protagonist looks at the cathedral interior, he holds the light right in front of his face. This would effectively blind him and preclude seeing the walls. He should keep the light behind or above his face. See more »

I Couldn't Believe My Eyes
14 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

The first time I ever saw The Cathedral, I was sitting in Film class in high school. It was the only movie all year that I didn't want to end. It held my attention, from the beginning to the end. In fact I didn't even notice that I didn't blink until my contacts blurred over. The computer animation is just stunning, the soundtrack is beautiful, and the story is brilliant; there can be so many different interpretations. Once I saw The Cathedral, I wanted to watch it again and again. If you get a chance to see this film definitely see it, see what you think it means. You'll definitely have fun trying to figure out the meaning of it all.
