The more you consider the theological undertones of Virgin, the more radical it becomes.

As a religious-themed movie, Virgin is as unconventional as they come.

So much of Virgin is bunk masquerading as sexual politics.

An unfortunately muddled portrait of a teenage girl going through a moral and spiritual crisis.

Evinces too much of the Lars Von Trier influence (especially Breaking the Waves) while falling victim to some of its central character's overt strangeness.

[F]elt too much like a really impressive school project, film school project but not a complete feature film.

It all descends quickly into desultory melodrama, with broadly drawn nightmares of demon-male small-mindedness balanced against impeccable portraits of the sacred feminine in action.

There are some powerful emotions coursing through Virgin, writer-director Deborah Kampmeier's raw first feature, and a tighter script would have made them even more affecting.

Ms. Kampmeier never brings her themes into tight focus.
