Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Largely predictable."
‑ Andy Webster, New York Times
"For a film so bent on celebrating the power of silence, Mysteries of the Jesus Prayer has a whole lot of explanatory talking."
‑ Diego Costa, Slant Magazine
"Though initially fascinating, this two-hour travelogue soon becomes repetitive as it forsakes stark desert isolation for icon-festooned churches and overcrowded ceremonies."
‑ Ronnie Scheib, Variety
"A documentary that presents a long-needed overview of Eastern spirituality in our time with its emphasis on prayer, silence, and living icons."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"Tackles the ancient and the unknown with such repetitive and increasingly unenlightening means that the documentary soon morphs into an overlong travelogue."
‑ Nick Schager, Village Voice
