"Corpus Christi" is neither a parable nor an allegory, yet image after image seems charged with intent, from the opening shot... to the climax, an apocalyptic welter of fire and blood.

The result males for a powerful, deservedly Oscar-nominated drama, and a launching pad for fresh-to-American-audiences young actor Bartosz Bielenia in the soul-contorting lead role.

January 14, 2020 | Full Review…

It's flawless storytelling, effortlessly played and with a rousing, if bloody, conclusion.

October 20, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Often moving but also disquieting and even intermittently funny, this drama unfurls a spiritual parable that is uniquely Polish but accessible to all.

October 17, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The finale is a gut-punch, but it arrives too long after Komasa has already exhausted most of his story's, and leading man's, energy.

September 7, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Not quite a religious experience, but original and absorbing.
