The Cinema of Shortage – Jan Komasa’s Corpus Christi review

The Polish candidate for the Academy Award, Jan Komasa’s Corpus Christi, is a film that, at first glance, fulfills a wish for such Polish socially involved cinema that could deconstruct the society’s relations of power. A cinema that could criticize closed to human needs clergy and authorities which are traditionally caring only for their own interests. In fact, Komasa’s latest work fulfills this dream only on paper.
