Abstract, yet moving... The film articulates a concept of universal humanity. No matter the religion or circumstances, we all have the same desires for peace and connection throughout life.
Rarely lingers on any subject for long and even more rarely inquires about the beliefs behind the ceremonies it observes.
Mr. Lennon enlisted 40 filmmakers in 25 countries to record scenes large and small, and the results are surprisingly cohesive.
An impressively global project yields an attractive, mild if rather diffuse film in "Sacred," a respectful exploration by documentarian Thomas Lennon of faith and religious practice across the globe.
It seems reasonable to turn to the subject of faith after having seen so much in the world.
Religion, with all its baggage, is absolutely beautiful.
What comes across is a heartfelt and aesthetically pleasing tour of ancient practices that have somehow survived the onslaught of modernity.
An intimate portrait from 25 countries of religious rituals and practices that are meaningful to individuals and communities.
A cinematic leap of faith delivers a globe-spanning yet strikingly intimate documentary meditation on how believers around the world practice their religion.
It is purely observational, kinetic cinema and, some might say, even a kind of prayer.
