Critic Reviews for The Providence Effect
The subjects seem to be guiding the director through the movie, which offers no objectivity and avoids obvious questions. It's among the best films in history within its genre, but that genre is infomercial.
This uplifting documentary breaks no new ground stylistically, but the story it tells is urgent and compelling.
Adams is well worth a movie, and this one's engaging as far as it goes. But for the film to be truer to the school's reputation, it would have had to dig a little deeper.
Adams and the school's students and teachers deserve an A-plus, although the film rates a much lower grade. It unfolds lifelessly, as Binzer parades a contingent of talking heads before the camera in what could pass for an infomercial.
More an infomercial than a movie, The Providence Effect is, at best, a well-earned tribute to one manâ(TM)s unwavering vision.
