1.0 out of 5 stars Ugly and insulting attack on the Church and the priesthood. 15 Feb. 2011
By J. Michael - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
So a cool, liberal priest hides a thoroughly vile prostitute from the police and travels around with her hearing about her woeful life. The Jewish director and ex-Catholic, New Age scriptwriter have tried to portray this as a film about "redemption", which they claim is actually very complimentary to the Catholic Faith and its priesthood. What a joke. This is another in a long line of anti-Catholic hate films. It portrays the traditional, faithful priest as a malicious, twisted pervert. It portrays the modern, skeptical, foul-mouthed priest as the heroic protagonist, who one night drunkenly hits golf balls at the statues and stained glass windows inside his own church, while excoriating the Catholic Church for a history of "intolerance', genocide, rape". In the worldview of these movies, the only good priest is the secular humanist one, who nurtures doubt, resentment and dissent. These films present religion as an absurd archaism, more often bad than good, but a universal human foible which can perhaps be exploited to good ends if the supernatural is reduced to its barest minimum, and the therapeutic aspects elevated to its raison d'etre. This is a scummy movie which soils the Sacred and insults the faithful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, unforgettable film 28 Oct. 2010
By J from NY - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Far superior to the 2008 feature "Doubt" with Meryl Streep and Philip Seymour Hoffmann, Marc Bernaoudt's "Sinner" is probably one of the best, most profound films to deal with Catholicism that I have ever seen. I'd even rank it up there with Bressons' "Diary of a Country Priest" in terms of passion and clarity.

This film takes place in the wake of the sex scandals that plagued the Church in 1991. Nick Chundlund ("Training Day", "Con Air") plays the saintly Father Anthony Romano, who is perhaps the opposite of how most Catholic priests are portrayed in contemporary film--he is more like Peck's priest in "The Keys of the Kingdom" than Linus Roaches' anguished, contradiction riddled padre in 1994's "Priest"

A surreal tour de force with very little cliche or backing off from the cruel realities of the world both inside and outside the rectory, Romano is a gentle man with a few secrets and a golfing buddy who helps him "use his muscle memory" played in top form by Brad Dourif, the Church's groundskeeper. He has the misfortune to be paired with a clearly mentally disturbed fellow priest (Michael E. Rodgers in a genuinely frightening role) a fundamentalist who despises Romano for being a "Vatican II liberal who panders to any little qualm the parishoners have"--all this while he is bailing the guy out of jail for assaulting a prostitute played by Georgina Cates.

This prostitute, Lil, focuses her sights on Catholic priests--attempting to get them to violate their celibacy and then using blackmail as her ruse to empty their pockets. She is a lost, desperate soul, and takes Romano hostage after the incident (which is never explained fully) with his nutjob priest in arms.

A lot is explored here, perhaps with more earnestness than I have yet seen (and without the malicious, reactionary cynicism) of most movies about the Catholic Church in contemporary times. Everyone does a wonderful job but the highlight is really Romano--a man in whom Christ has truly put on His "new man". The dialogue between Romano and Lil is priceless.

I'd recommend this film particularly to lapsed Catholics trying to make sense of their faith in the contemporary world. A masterpiece.

2.0 out of 5 stars Third class Movie! 18 July 2014
By Nara - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
What good I learn from this movie- Nothing ! I have no objection to see some of the viewers have found this is a wonderful story.
This story is just made to have fun on the Church and mainly Catholic Church.I have no problem in the democracy you can
mock on the Church but my question is can you do any thing like this to any other religious faith?
I think the story and movie is waste of time . It is better to watch a Cartoon!!
There has been enough movie made already with big budgets to ridicule the Church, you not need to do any more.
There are other hate movie on Church and you may like them but SINNER can not have my support.
If you want enjoy and waste your time, money and mind, that's your choice!

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely See This 29 May 2009
By brenda - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Thoughtful and cerebral film from a first-time feature director that makes the viewer really think about values of love and sin. Multi-award wins at film festivals across the country, this is not to be missed and an important film for those that muse about religious guilt.
