Father Benedict Groeschel pays tribute to the preeminent father of the Catholic Church as host of this three-part biographical series chronicling the life and work of St. Augustine. The author of more than 5 million published words of philosophy, scriptural analysis and history, St. Augustine is also famous (or, in some circles, infamous) for concluding that infants who have not been baptized will go to hell because of original sin.

This austere non-narrative should fascinate fashion buffs and fans of rigorous cinematic formalism, but leave everyone else fidgeting restlessly in their mass-market jeans and T-shirts.
A glimpse inside the mind of one of the last century's biggest names and a history lesson about the world of high fashion.
The picture is wrapped in a haze of melancholy, as if we're watching a swath of history -- the history of couture, specifically -- winding slowly away from us.
Despite the excess of information, the films are so unfocused we never get to know the man behind the gowns.
Enlightening and enjoyable.
If you're curious about fashion, it's okay. If sitting through two documentaries about fashion sounds as exciting as, well watching people sew on buttons, skip it.
Teboul's films get as close as anyone to revealing the inner workings of the mind of a man who stands as one of the truly influential, world's eye-view-changing designers of the last century.
Teboul explores the nature of Saint Laurent's peculiar genius in these two related documentaries that, taken together, form an interesting portrait of a fascinating, if at times maddeningly enigmatic, figure of high fashion.
Uncovers less than one might wish about Saint Laurent's enigmatic personality, but fashion buffs will get an eyeful.
