Benedetta

Benedetta ★★★

Even before watching Benedetta, I was ready to proclaim it film of the year. And not just because of that exquisite poster. This is Verhoeven, after all.

Sadly, I was disappointed with Benedetta. Don't get me wrong. This is not a terrible film. Far from it. I just think I was expecting Ken Russell's The Devils. And this is not that. Benedetta does take some decent jabs at organized religion, but I didn't find Verhoeven's bite as sharp as it could be.
