    It's not often that a film changes history, but it's just possible that Irish writer-director John Deery's righteously energetic Conspiracy of Silence just might help alter the course of 21st century Catholicism.
  2. A challenging, thought-provoking debut that compassionately questions the relevance of celibacy in the Catholic Church.
  3. Deery's modest drama is one big, obvious argument against the vow of celibacy for Roman Catholic priests, but it has heart.
  4. Feels like a personal vendetta.
  5. Deery's points are well-taken, but they would have been a lot better made if he hadn't taken so many easy shots at the church by demonizing its local authorities.
  6. 50
    Touches on issues raised in "Bad Education," but without Pedro Almodovar's flamboyant elegance.
  7. 30
    A well-intentioned but ultimately incompetent Irish dud.
