Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence In The House Of God Review

Image for Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence In The House Of God

Alex Gibney's documentary casts an unsparing eye over the abuse of vulnerable children by Catholic priests.

★★★★

That it’s uncomfortable, unpleasant and infuriating is only a reflection of how superbly Alex Gibney has constructed his documentary about child abuse in the Catholic Church and the lack of action to stop it. A horrifying story, boldly told.

It may look like a documentary but Gibney's film is a horror film in every sense. Essential, uncomfortable viewing.
