Review: Holy Frit (2023)

I was a little surprised at how moved I was by Holy Frit, a documentary about stained glass makers, one studio in particular, and a commission they get to build the largest stained glass window in the world. I got so into it – it’s a cliffhanger (will they meet their deadline?), it’s emotional (everyone working so hard and collaborating together), and it’s also awe-inspiring – all these artisans and construction workers and glass painters – these people who have devoted themselves to an artform 1,000 years old. I highly recommend it! I reviewed for Ebert.

      It’s so good. I can totally see why you would absolutely dig it:

      the competence on display is thrilling! the dedication to this tiny esoteric craft that only a handful of people in the world can do at any kind of level. and then accomplishment! I REALLY dug it – I hope you get to see it!
