My Review Of "Sacred Heart"
30 August 2018 | by ASouthernHorrorFanSee all my reviews

"Sacred Heart" is a heartfelt exploration into pain, loss, and one's struggle with spirituality. The film is heavy on dialog with most of the story focusing on a confrontional conversation between the protagonist and antagonist. It plays out in an almost Machiavellian manner. The intense subject matter, and journey of the lead character is told with an almost elegant and personal insight by writer / director Kosta Nikas.

The cinematography is done beautifully, bouncing between stark realism and surreal moments meant to convey emotional turmoil. The action is limited, most of the scenes rely heavily on subliminal, and suggestive imagery to create suspense. There are very few thrills beyond the meat of the story - tragedy, recovery, mostly explored through dialog. The ending offers the film's only real edge.

Overall "Sacred Heart" isn't a film that most crime- noir or action-thriller fans will enjoy. The drama is long and heavy. There is very little real thrilling action, or major excitement. Still, the story is relatable, the characters are strong, and the film - on a whole - is nicely told.
