Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence in the House of God (2012)

Director: Alex Gibney. 106 min. Documentary.

Devastating documentary. We've all heard about the Vatican child sex abuse scandal, but this film portrays how insanely widespread the disaster is. Thee fact that the recently resigned Pope Benedict/Cardinal Ratzinger was in charge of investigating (and protecting) all these child molesters for years, and that he was chosen to become Pope in lieu of his overseeing the crimes and keeping them silent, sends shivers down your spine. By the way, the same Cardinals will go into conclave again in a few days to choose the new Pope.

PS: Thank you, Mohi, for the recommendation.
