Ulrich Seidl's camera takes confession in his coolly removed documentary, a fascinating look at the inner workings of six devout Catholics Jesus, You Know video. Shot in various churches in the director's native Austria, the film dispenses with interviews and consists of static shots of religious people speaking to the camera as if it were God Jesus, You Know film. Their prayers offer insight into their deepest fears and concerns, while the lack of response intimates the filmmaker's implicit question: is anybody listening? A woman laments her husband's affair, while another discusses her Pakistani husband's television habits, and a teenage boy reveals his sexual fantasies about Biblical stories Jesus, You Know review. True to form, Seidl highlights the oddities located within the average soul, but his treatment is ever so slightly more compassionate than in his previous work.
