Critic Reviews for In the Name Of...
Szumowska, who co-wrote the script with the film's first-rate cinematographer Michal Englert, effectively imbues this haunting, deeply reflective tale with equal parts tension, dread, desire and inevitability.
The whole movie suffers from a lack of narrative momentum and a surfeit of wordless shots of men exchanging deep, meaningful glances.
The exogenous factors contributing to his turmoil are the ones in which he's most indoctrinated, and by humanizing this broader struggle, Szumowska's institutional denouncements are even more heartbreaking and scathing.
This quiet provocation from the Polish arm of Lars von Trier's Zentropa Entertainments falls into that conflicted-cleric subgenre encompassing everything from The Thorn Birds to Antonia Bird's Priest.
Leaves you with a handful of scenes rather than a robust story.
Audience Reviews for In the Name Of...
A stupid little tale of a priest who falls for a guy who isn't quite there. Meant to be profound, this tale falls very flat.
It takes long to shape a premise and focus on its intentions, with the character's sexual and moral conflict not so naturally explored and made clear only too late, and it is hard not to feel uneasy with a film that wants us to understand a pedophile, which is what he is after all.
