    Should definitely join the ranks of Scorsese's great "faith films," up there with "Last Temptation of Christ" and "Bringing Up the Dead." Its use of voiceover narration is extremely thoughtful and sophisticated; the last 1/4 of the film plays the action on the screen *against* the narration in a really effective, moving way. The cinematography and editing is a little too clean and sleek in places, per usual with Scorsese. I don't need my religious films to look like "The Wolf of Wall Street." The sound design and sound editing deserved Oscars, as did the dude who played the inquisitor!

    David Spade on St. Anselm is delightful.
