    I'm not against sap when it's so beautifully depicted. "Nyquist, lanky and charismatic, makes a fine reluctant savior. The villains are obvious, and the ending’s a foregone conclusion. But it’s done with such thrumming revelation and infectious joy, I instantly forgave any and all [cinematic] sins that [come with it]." - Amy Biancolli, Houston Chronicle

    A surprising choice for an Oscar nomination as it is really just a soap opera dressed in a choir's clothes. A conductor moves back to his hometown and takes on the duties of cantor and tries to realize his dreams of creating a music that 'opens up people's souls'. Uh huh.

  6. kampton's rating of the film As It Is in Heaven

    Takes a wrong turn about a quarter of the way in and careens down an icy path into the slush of sentimentality.

  7. Leiah Fournier's rating of the film As It Is in Heaven

    If I wanted to watch a feel good film, I'd watch porn.

  8. Weston Campbell's rating of the film As It Is in Heaven

    Has the shallow, rushed feel of a movie edited down from twice its length. Clichéd “emotional” subplots and characters are trotted out and exploited without earning any of their implied gravity as if the filmmakers were relying exclusively on the audience's recall of other, better films.

  9. Luchofede's rating of the film As It Is in Heaven

    Take the people out of the Church, and life returns to their existence.
