The Two Popes Reviews

You can see this movie no matter what faith you believe in. How they show the papal process is fascinating and how you think about your own faith and your own call from God.

Though cinema more often entertains, it can on rare occasions heal wounds both intellectual and spiritual. The Two Popes falls just short of that accomplishment, but it comes tantalizingly close.

A good movie about a long conversation between a present and future pope. Hopkins and Pryce are at the top of their game.

Even if there are some criticisms present, a tone of conciliation prevails, which reaches a significant dose of emotionalism. [Full Review in Spanish]

It becomes easier and easier to watch it as just one specific thing: Jonathan Pryce and Anthony Hopkins getting to play verbal tennis.

The reason The Two Popes works so well is because it addresses a difficult theme in an attractive way for the public at large. [Full Review in Spanish]

Even though the scenes that feature the encounters between the two popes could come across as implausible, in the hands of Hopkins and Pryce they end up being eloquent, convincing, and entertaining. [Full Review in Spanish]

A fantastic role [for Jonathan Pryce] that allows him to show so much more depth as an actor.
December 23, 2019
The clear politics surrounding these men and their level of importance is softened by the intentional frankness to make these figures more reachable and human than merely humane from their lofty perches.

What do the two popes of Netflix's new film The Two Popes have in common with Sherlock Holmes and a murderous robot doll? Great stars, and unfortunately, an inability to break free of source material that doesn't matter all that much.
December 23, 2019
A tightly constructed narrative, which examines the role of forgiveness, The Two Popes is a lowkey buddy comedy that simply follows two actors at the top of their game.

In other words, liberals and conservatives can find common ground, if the conservatives would just agree to surrender the field of ideas to the liberals and step out of the way... The Two Popes is fantasy built on lies.

The extraordinary thing about this movie is the humanity of the disparate pair, and the wonderful portrait of two characters that converge in a central point: to maintain the unity of their church. [Full Review in Spanish]

The Two Popes is essentially a flight of fancy, and far more enjoyable than expected.

Ratzinger and Bergoglio clash, but they also bond over pizza; they have disagreements, but they also dance the tango; they argue, but they wouldn't dream of watching the World Cup final with anyone but each other. They're men of God, but they're men.

You cannot question why Francis has become so beloved after watching this film. The way in which Pryce layers pain and regret into the performance will leave you speechless.
