  • Kirby Dick's damning, Oscar- nominated documentary, Twist of Fate, puts a face on the clerical sex scandals rocking the Roman Catholic Church.

    July 1, 2005 | Rating: 3/4
  • The child-abuse scandals that rocked the Catholic Church are brought to painfully intimate terms in this engrossing, unnerving documentary.

  • Kirby Dick (Derrida) shapes the movie in such a way as to leave everyone flummoxed.

    June 28, 2005
  • A powerful and damning look at the long-term impact of sexual abuse, as well as the less-than-exemplary response of Catholic Church officials to allegations of priestly molestation.

Audience Reviews for Twist of Faith

  • Apr 28, 2011
    It works as a companion to the horrifying documentary 'Deliver Us From Evil'. That film, while it dealt with the emotional toll it took on families and their personal rage at those responsible, was more about the environment in the Catholic Church that allowed this type of rampant abuse to occur and remain secret for so long. 'Twist of Faith' is entirely about the personal cost of sexual abuse on the victims. It never goes away, and its arguable that it may never really get better. The toll it takes on this mans family life, his sexual relationship with his wife, his interaction with other people, his religious faith, and every day moments is astronomical. Director Kirby Dick wisely keeps the focus on the people and lets them talk and tell the story. Its unbelievably sad and infuriating that this Priest could destroy so many lives . . . and not just those he abused but the loved ones of the victims as well.
