Stations of the Cross doesn’t aim for allegory, and any potential emotional qualities end up negated by the insistent frostiness of its tone. What’s left is a mean curiosity of a film, one that focuses all its energy on the sustained depiction of its central tragedy, a self-flagellatory exercise that seems dependent on a certain de rigueur mode of modern Teutonic social criticism.
