Has all the hallmarks of a high-quality independent production, where real-life texture and genuine emotion more than compensate for lack of polish.
For better and worse, Rosemary Rodriguez's directing debut feels just like what it is -- a drama about addiction made by a recovering addict.
Rosemary Rodriguez makes a worthy debut with this troubling tale of a young druggie struggling to survive on the streets of the East Village.
Despite its crudeness, the film has a number of scenes that are so real they hurt.
Digna's struggle with sellout guilt is way more interesting than Alix's boilerplate dissembly, but ultimately Digna's just a pawn in the moralist checkmate.
Generally competent and contains the heartfelt and persuasive message that judging others is easy, but truly empathizing is hard.
...just not all that entertaining...
Rodriguez depicts addicts as a sea of agitated vultures haunting the streets...counteracted by character confrontations forced to move too quickly and predictable plot turns.
Honesty, a great virtue, is insufficient to make a good film.
Call me shallow, but the rest of us might prefer something a bit more, well, entertaining.
Man, the life of a junkie sure does suck. I got that point fairly early in Acts of Worship, yet for some reason the movie kept telling me over and over again.
There is nothing really new or particularly insightful here, and even though Acts is at least watchable, it begins to fade from memory almost immediately.
