Critic Reviews for Conspiracy of Silence

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (10) | Fresh (9) | Rotten (16)

  • Isn't quite up to the task of intelligently advocating for change.

    March 18, 2005 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • A good cast (Brenda Fricker, Hugh Bonneville and assorted veterans of British and Irish film and TV) gives Deery's film weight and credibility.

    March 11, 2005 | Rating: 3/5
  • The need to portray the powers-that-be at all levels -- from the Vatican to the local parish -- in the worst possible light intrudes upon the movie, making it feel like a personal vendetta.

    February 11, 2005 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Certainly a debate over the church's tradition of an unmarried clergy ... could be a good and worthy one. But a quick, clumsy melodrama -- complete with awkward, pop-scored sex scenes -- isn't the best venue.

    December 3, 2004
  • While the subject of enforced priestly celibacy is important, here it is dealt with in a workman-like manner lacking vibrancy.

    December 3, 2004 | Rating: 2/4
  • Deery's points are well-taken, but they would have been a lot better made if he hadn't taken so many easy shots at the church by demonizing its local authorities.

    December 3, 2004 | Rating: 2/4

Audience Reviews for Conspiracy of Silence

  • Mar 02, 2011
    Interesting insights into the cloistered life of priests. The movie examines the concept of celibacy in the Roman Catholic Church, showing the hypocritical, political, and detrimental effects it has on them. Good cast. Decently done.
