  • Holy Rollers squanders a fascinating premise with predictable execution. show more

  • The screenplay, by Antonio Macia, is earnest and unsurprising--not a good combination--and neither the director nor the star quite knows what to make of the quirky character inside the traditional garments that signal otherworldly innocence to customs agents. show more
