Movie Review – The Ornithologist

The Ornithologist seems to be quietly staying below the radar, overshadowed by the big summer blockbuster superhero movies. This review by KUNC film critic Howie Movshovitz is very intriguing. It presents the movie as a modern retelling of the story of Anthony of Padua, and by extension the spiritual journey which we are all on.

If you have seen the movie, feel free to share your thoughts in the comments.
