A kind of unintentional leaving gift for the outgoing Pope Benedict, though it is not one he is likely to relish.
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.
It feels a bit like a monster movie. It is, too.
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.
a carefully constructed observation of the facts and a withering condemnation of the behaviour of the Catholic Church.
Before you say you can't take another feature length documentary about sexual abuse committed by Catholic priests, know that Alex Gibney's examination of the subject is both fresh and revelatory.
Gibney tracks a disgraceful cover-up within the Catholic church.
A heartbreaking, brilliantly executed exposé, in which four deaf victims bring the church to account. Their testimonies are chilling.
Alex Gibney isn't casting the first stone at the Vatican with his documentary Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence in the House of God. But, God willing, it will be the most effective in shattering their narrative of blissful ignorance.
Tragedy that sticks to your bones -- a gut-punch look at the Catholic Church child sex abuse scandal as filtered through the experiential prism of a group of victims from a single Midwestern school for the deaf.
I understand that documentaries surrounding this subject may seem like well worn territory, but honestly until the Catholic Church really starts to own up to what its done (and I promise you it has not) lets keep making these. I'm glad that Gibney address the fact that the pedophile Priests were aided and abetted by not just the Church leadership, but also by a public who refused to believe these allegations.
