Largely predictable.

New York Times
Top Critic

Though initially fascinating, this two-hour travelogue soon becomes repetitive as it forsakes stark desert isolation for icon-festooned churches and overcrowded ceremonies.

Top Critic

Tackles the ancient and the unknown with such repetitive and increasingly unenlightening means that the documentary soon morphs into an overlong travelogue.

Top Critic

For a film so bent on celebrating the power of silence, Mysteries of the Jesus Prayer has a whole lot of explanatory talking.

Slant Magazine

A documentary that presents a long-needed overview of Eastern spirituality in our time with its emphasis on prayer, silence, and living icons.
