Highly Recommended - "..directed with ritualistic fervor..performed with powerhouse physicality..an absolute stunner..In many ways a timely cautionary tale about how power (whether religious or political) can go amok...sure to draw even the most resistant souls into its fearsome grip"..- Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun Times
