Sagrada: The Mystery of Creation Reviews

April 5, 2015
Stefan Haupt's 'biography' of Barcelona's Sagrada Familia is handsome yet bland.
April 3, 2015
Directed by Switzerland's Stefan Haupt in a deliberate, unforced manner, "Sagrada: The Mystery of Creation" takes a satisfying three-pronged approach to this unique structure: visual, historical and reportorial.
January 9, 2015
Zurich-born Stefan Haupt, however, interrupts his rapturous tour of this basilica with lackluster interviews.

December 18, 2014
Employing bursts of Bach and English-language narration, this lulling, informative documentary never fully grapples with its topic's complexity.
December 16, 2014
A peaceful and gently stirring documentary that considers faith and architecture and human achievement in something like geologic time.
December 11, 2014
The photography is impressive as well, Haupt's camera moving gracefully through the interior of the basilica and ascending to its spectacular heights.
September 11, 2014
A sometimes pedantic, mostly fascinating documentary about Barcelona's towering cathedral, La Sagrada Familia, which was conceived by Antoni Gaudí in the late 19th century.

The only mystery here is why, even for architecture geeks, this documentary is duller than watching stucco dry.
