February 22, 2020
Director Jan Komasa tells an unexpected story about the transformative power of religion...
February 21, 2020
An engrossing puzzle.
February 21, 2020
[I]t deviates enough from formula-especially in its arresting ending, which takes full advantage of Bielenia's haunted visage-to be worth seeing.
February 21, 2020
It is to the credit of writer Mateusz Pacewicz-and Komasa, and the utterly convincing Belenia, whose face could have inspired Goya-that little which happens is what we expect, or necessarily want, but the film will resonate persistently.
February 20, 2020
Komasa and Pacewicz deserve credit for not succumbing to trite political rationales... Corpus Christi maintains commitment to morality as a faith. It could be very instructive for this period.
February 19, 2020
Bielenia is never less than totally compelling.
February 19, 2020
It's a film that engages with the dour without becoming bitter, and a film that allows for redemption but only through the hardest possible work.

This movie invites us to develop the ability to understand the world beyond its appearances. [Full Review in Spanish]
February 18, 2020
Shot in a grim, desaturated palette, this Polish film, directed by Jan Komasa, addresses big issues of conscience and morality.
February 18, 2020
Another fantastic film from a country that has continually been delivering the goods in terms of original storytelling.
February 16, 2020
It's within the murky realm of self-doubt and spiritual anxiety that it's at its most audacious and compelling.
February 15, 2020
Bielenia's magnetic performance, all piercing eyes and daring energy, infuses the film with a vitality and masculinity not typically associated with the clergy.
February 14, 2020
The film ... puts forth a variety of questions about faith, forgiveness, and fraud.
February 11, 2020
Corpus Christi is simplistic and logical, and as a result is beautifully real, tenderly sketching pained characters in need of a saviour.
February 7, 2020
"Corpus Christi" is neither a parable nor an allegory, yet image after image seems charged with intent, from the opening shot... to the climax, an apocalyptic welter of fire and blood.
February 6, 2020
Corpus Christi is simply brilliant.
February 4, 2020
An understated, fierce masterpiece that deserves to be remembered as one of the finest films of 2019.
January 30, 2020
Corpus Christi makes the sly argument that holiness is as much a state of mind as one of ordainment.
January 30, 2020
Corpus Christi is surprisingly entertaining, sometimes funny fare, with a soft colour palette, smart dialogue, and enough graceful repose to provoke deeper thought.
January 28, 2020
One of the more provocative International Film submissions, Corpus Christi makes First Reformed look like a Disney movie.
