Critic Reviews for Twist of Faith
Dick's film puts a human face on a churchwide scandal that sometimes seems too big to comprehend.
It's a demanding film but one filled with important truths about humanity in all its denominations.
The pain and the contradictions and the ironies are manifold, and Dick...does justice to all.
Kirby Dick's damning, Oscar- nominated documentary, Twist of Fate, puts a face on the clerical sex scandals rocking the Roman Catholic Church.
Abuses of power are all the more shocking when the betrayers are expected to be figures of moral integrity.
The child-abuse scandals that rocked the Catholic Church are brought to painfully intimate terms in this engrossing, unnerving documentary.
Audience Reviews for Twist of Faith
About as bad a documentary as can be made. While I feel awful that this man was possibly abused, nothing he did made me feel he was a good parent or even human being. I'm terrified for this man's kids. His parenting is atrocious. Genuinely the worst documentary I have ever seen. I am shocked by the reviews.
Kirby Dick brings light to a very serious issue. Overall I think it was a bit narrow and could have featured a wider array of criminals rather than focus on the story of one and his victim.
I really like that they made a documentary about this, because this is a topic that needs to be talked about. However, the documentary itself didn't really answer any of my questions, was put together in a somewhat disjointed matter, didn't tell any sort of coherent story or create a solid enough atmosphere, and the ending was an abrupt transition away from what they were trying to say at the beginning. Obviously with a documentary you can't craft an ending the way you can in fiction, but it felt like the entire thing was dropped but they pretended it wasn't. Disappointing, because I was fascinated by the subject material.
