Striking compositions function was a tableaux for the people inhibiting them and the audience watching. Its more of an open confessional than it is a documentary. Empty alters with small inhabitants makes a strong case that it isn't religion or religious devotion that is strange but the actual members themselves! I don't know how Seidl got these folks to agree to be it this. Stunning!
If only these people talked to each other and the people around them half as much as they do to Jesus, their relationships would improve immediately. It's a perfect example how the religion can cause more harm than good when people rely on it for the most part and forget about themselves. Otherwise I find it quite visually appealing, I enjoy the interior and exterior of churches greatly.
