Critic Reviews for Saint of 9/11
Tears and emotions flow freely through the film, which successfully captures a little of the original horror and raw, unpoliticized emotion of that beautiful late summer day.
Saint of 9/11, an unabashed tribute to Judge's life, struggles and Christian mission, does a good job of communicating what made Judge an inspiring figure to many, while making his life's work accessible and understandable.
If you think you can't bear to see another World Trade Center movie, you should still see the new documentary, Saint of 9/11.
... a cinematic elegy for Father Mychal Judge ...
You come away from this movie with a bracing recognition that grace and perfection don't always share the same corners of the soul -- which doesn't and shouldn't prevent you from doing good works for others.
Audience Reviews for Saint of 9/11
[font=Century Gothic]Father Mychal Judge was a Franciscan monk and New York Fire Department chaplain whose death at the World Trade Center on 9/11 was captured in a famous photograph. Since nobody should be known more for his death than his life, especially someone like Judge who cared for so many people, along comes "Saint of 9/11," an anecdotal documentary to rectify that. Basically, it has the feel of a funeral mass as his friends and colleagues, along with those he tended to, plus two who only knew him postmortem, speak about how he touched their lives, as he tried to make the world a better place from Nothern Ireland(his parents are from Ireland and he always felt a connection to that place) to AIDS patients(he was a closeted gay man) in the early days of the epidemic. Archival footage is also used, including some of him preaching but not nearly enough. And if you're going to employ Ian McKellen to narrate, make sure to get your money's worth.[/font]
