Critic Reviews for Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence In The House Of God
The case has been widely reported but this is still an important film, laying out who knew what, and when. It's chilling: the conspiracy of silence goes all the way to the Vatican.
In the end, decades of such crimes going undetected and undeterred under the aegis of one employer - any employer - speaks for itself. And the extraordinary perseverance and courage of the men from St. John's speaks louder still.
Partly an inspiring saga of growing "deaf power" and human resilience, and partly a murky and fragmentary drama about an immense, closed-minded bureaucracy with paranoid and conspiratorial tendencies that finds itself unable to adjust to the modern world.
There is something to be said for a clear and unblinking recitation of facts, and thankfully Mr. Gibney does a lot of that.
Audience Reviews for Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence In The House Of God
Informative documentary, very interesting. But it could not hold my attention. I thought it was a boring film.
HBO is free this weekend. A horror film of reality, Mea Maxima Culpa, should be seen by everyone. Kudos to Alex Gibney for giving 4 deaf men a voice and educating the public about 2000 years of cover-up.
Compelling, dramatic cinema given weight by honest interviews with those involved in the subject matter. I watched this one evening while my friend slept in the bed next to me. I thought that there wouldn't be too much talking because the main victims of the events dramatized were deaf and thus communicated through sign language, in which I am fluent. But, instead of captions for viewers to understand them, there were narrators. It wasn't a hokey translation either, rather, taken very gravely and with much care. I was not disappointed with many aspects of this film. I would share and pass this on to my friends and family.
