Glenn Holsten's Saint of 9/11 documents the life of Franciscan monk Mychal Judge, who died during the attack on the World Trade Center. This man of the cloth led a full and varied life that involved him battling alcoholism, ministering to the first wave of AIDS victims in the '80s (Holsten himself was homosexual), and acting as a fire department chaplain in New York City. Narrarated by Sir Ian McKellen, the film interviews many people who witnessed Holsten's various selfless acts. ~ Perry

Tears and emotions flow freely through the film, which successfully captures a little of the original horror and raw, unpoliticized emotion of that beautiful late summer day.
Saint of 9/11, an unabashed tribute to Judge's life, struggles and Christian mission, does a good job of communicating what made Judge an inspiring figure to many, while making his life's work accessible and understandable.
If you think you can't bear to see another World Trade Center movie, you should still see the new documentary, Saint of 9/11.
... a cinematic elegy for Father Mychal Judge ...
You come away from this movie with a bracing recognition that grace and perfection don't always share the same corners of the soul -- which doesn't and shouldn't prevent you from doing good works for others.
Judge comes off as a warm, smart and courageous priest free of pretensions.
This impressively mounted, feature-length eulogy for the courageous Franciscan friar who devoted his life to bringing peace, solace and reconciliation to all in need makes a compelling argument for canonization.
If a documentary makes you wish you had known its subject, it has definitely done something right.
Hearing so many people speak lovingly of Father Mychal Judge helps overcome the wobbly nature of this well-intended but flawed tribute.
An extraordinary documentary about Father Mychal Judge who followed his natural caring impulse into a life of compassionate service of others.
