Critic Reviews for Saints and Sinners

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (5)

Docu's case-pleading is duly high-minded and effective. But the sense of emotional identification that might have really socked the point across is lacking.

As with so many of the low-budget, video-shot documentaries currently managing to achieve theatrical release, too often Saints and Sinners has the feel of a home movie of greater interest to its participants than to an audience.

It is, simply, a slice of life, one that transcends questions of right or wrong, moral or immoral.

Top Critic

For an outside observer, Saints and Sinners doesn't make particularly compelling viewing, but Ms. Honor has given her subjects an excellent present on their big day: the ultimate wedding video.

A quietly persuasive and very timely documentary.

You may feel like you've seen this story before, but not for a very long time, and never so gorgeously filmed.

Audience Reviews for Saints and Sinners


I'm sure ten years ago, this would've played with my heart strings more, but as it is in 2014, I found it pretty boring and very dated.
