Critic Reviews for Monsignor
Lots of potential for a rare, absorbing, behind-the-scenes look at the Vatican is totally blown.
I do not object to the filmmaker's desire to make a film of overwhelming cynicism about the Vatican power structure. I simply object to the film they have made.
Monsignor manages to make itself the most extravagant piece of Hollywood junk since Mommie Dearest, for which the producer Frank Yablans and the director Frank Perry were also responsible.
This wretched melodrama, set against a backdrop of altars, papal blessings, and promiscuous priests, has all the content of an empty chalice.
