Corpus Christi (Boze cialo) Reviews
October 16, 2020
A work that barely falters. [Full review in Spanish]
October 10, 2020
Corpus Christi is buoyed by exceptional craftsmanship, including Bartosz Bielenia's nuanced performance and several deft stylistic choices.

In the hands of Komasa and Pacewicz, Daniel is a creature of instinct and as such, can be frustratingly contradictory...but the journey of the bogan who becomes a bogus cleric is never not interesting.
July 6, 2020
Unsettling drama about faith and identity fraud over an ex-con youth posing as a small town priest.
July 5, 2020
Daniel is a fascinating character brought to vivid life by Bielenia, and the movie forsakes the usual pious clichés in order to fully dig into the themes of faith and forgiveness.
July 2, 2020
What makes Corpus Christi disturbing, in a good way, is that the deviant struggles harder against circumstance than the conventionally pious.

The film seems to be saying that, in pursuit of dogmatic consistency and institutional authority, the Catholic Church has inordinately sacrificed charisma and mystery[.]
June 27, 2020
It's so universal that it can easily fit into any country in the world when it deals with topics such as hypocrisy, the moral recesses of faith and the social circumstances of lost individuals desperately seeking an identity. [Full review in Spanish]

A story about redemption and double moral in our societies. A rit de pass as Marcel Mauss said. A must in the religious films. [Full review in Spanish]
June 17, 2020
A deep, intense feature of an imposter in a narrative drama filled with Catholic ritual.
June 4, 2020
By the end, Komasa tries too hard to convince us how important and sober his film is, even if its critiques are valid.
May 28, 2020
While it's not an easy watch, Jan Komasa's film is an emotional powerhouse that will leave viewers rattled.
April 24, 2020
Even when events get intense, even violent, and they do, there's nothing abrupt. "Corpus Christi" never erupts. It unfolds.
April 4, 2020
Shooting in beautifully composed 2.39 : 1 widescreen, director of photography Piotr Sobocinski Jr. favors the greens of rebirth accented by Madonna hued bluesBielenia is perfectly cast, his cinematic face capable of appearing both demonic and angelic
April 3, 2020
Bartosz Bielenia and director Jan Komasa spin an inspirational tale and a tense countdown.
March 29, 2020
Joins "Calvary" and "First Reformed" in the the ranks of recent intelligent works about faith that challenge and inspire viewers rather than pander to them.
March 26, 2020
Bielenia's damp-eyed performance is the broken heart of this restrained and low-key narrative.
