Three Christs Reviews

January 17, 2020
The setup at least allows for a bunch of fine actors to really chew the scenery during group therapy sessions.

Director and co-writer Jon Avnet fails to make this decidedly odd material into a credible experience.

It's unfortunate that the film itself isn't as piercing and inventive as the performers inside of it, but it's reassuring that such talent can still shine even when encased in otherwise milquetoast surroundings.

When Avnet's film takes the same approach, and just lets them talk, it is painful, noble, and beautiful, not least because of the great performances of the three schizophrenic characters.

An amazing ensemble of actors creates a compelling story based on true events. This movie deserves to be seen.

To the extent that [the experiment] was an interesting thing to do, this is an interesting movie.

It's an intriguing set-up, but it feels like there are pieces that are either shuffled around to make a point, or missing entirely.

"Three Christs" delicately balances humor and the dramatic need for human connection as it expertly explores the disorder of paranoid schizophrenia.

Psychiatric drama shows power of empathy; suicide, swearing.

Three Christs misses more opportunities than it grabs, which is unfortunate because both Dinklage and especially Goggins deliver performances worth seeing.

Richard Gere anchors "Three Christs" with a vintage performance, though the entire cast is very strong.
January 9, 2020
The director, Jon Avnet, who wrote the script with Eric Nazarian, succeeds in keeping the movie watchable in spite of its contrivances.

Walton Goggins is Three Christs' saving grace.

Eye-opening story about humanity vs power struggle with a star studded cast led by Richard Gere. Pacing is a little slow, but the message is strong on the disproportionate power struggle in the mental health institutions

It has some of the most solid performances from some of the best character actors in the world. So please do yourself a favor and check it out. Do it for Jesus, whether it be one of them, or all three.

This is an interesting look into a real mental health study that tried to break new ground in psychiatric treatment that were meant to cure, not just subdue and vegetate, the subject.

While this movie is imperfect, it doesn't take away from Gere's noble intentions.

It's enough to appreciate how far these characters have come regardless of whether the whole reason they're placed together is [problematically] usurped.

Avnet never lets the picture lapse into "cute," but there are moments, here and there, that seem off-key or gratuitous.

Three Christs - Or possibly four. Gere is commended for his principled choices on and off screen, including helping stranded immigrants off the Italian coast. But missing here about US mental health cruelty is better grasped now in another movie - Joker.
