anti church, but not anti-god
i thought this movie was excellent. the take on what stigmata is, the
'miracle' of it, the historical and religious views of stigmata are
together within the plot of the movie.
it is definitely anti-church, or rather, anti-establishment and
politics. but it is not anti-god. the movie points out what many people
believe already, that you do not need a church building to believe in
yet, it's not a religious movie. it's not really a horror movie. there are
parts that are horrific, and it will make you think. don't watch this if
you're in the mood for mindless entertainment. see it, and make your own
judgements on what it's about. even if you don't agree with the premise,
acting and the storyline are well worth it.
