Thy Kingdom Come

RATING: [B-|🍅]

“When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her: woman, where are those thine accusers?”

A moving and rustic image of the Christian faith through the lens of a “priest” (Javier Bardem) recorded during the filming of Terrence Malick’s Into the WonderThy Kingdom Come is an unvarnished and unscripted pillage into the depths of America’s forgotten voices; struggling, like the rest of us, to escape our confined realities and not be made the bystanders of life’s cruelties.

The film is short, unadorned by the usual trappings of Hollywood—reminiscent of the many masterpieces of Ingmar Bergman in his beautiful depiction of faith and suffering. Thy Kingdom Come is a much-needed glimpse into the role that religion is supposed to play in society—extending itself past the comfort of American-church indolence and into the homes of the “least of these.” Ready to listen and not to judge.
