Review: Sunday Worship

Review: Sunday Worship

A melancholic journey into the past, Sunday Worship is a thought provoking short film tackling old age, loss and memory.

Thoroughly relatable to any Brit, Sunday Worship hit home for me more than blockbusters such as Still Alice as it chose to deal with a topic through the eyes of the everyday man down the pub. Choosing to ignore his issues, even his wife appears oblivious as she tries to understand what’s been changing in her husband’s life and why he continues to forget the little things.

Sunday Worship culminates in a beautifully put together ending with a thoroughly tear-jerking reveal.

Sunday Worship suffers from some odd cutting choices and a strange switch of style throughout that I felt could have been worked better, but Paul Holbrook & Sam Dawe have done a fantastic job working in a surprise ending that’s both shocking and compelling, but importantly realistic as well as heartbreaking. The undoubted star of the film is Brian Croucher (Eastenders, Blake’s 7), who you can barely tell is acting whilst Annabelle Leventon (London Bridge, Wimbledon) who plays his wife put it’s an honest and good performance as the two stars provide a performance as close to real life as you’re going to get.



Sunday Worship took its time to warm up, but it’s one hundred percent worth a watch if you can find it. I’ll certainly be looking out for the next one by these guys.

Films, games, Godzilla and Scott Pilgrim; these are the things that Alex loves. As he tries to make use of the fact he’s always staring at a screen or in a book, you’ll hopefully be treated to some good reviews along the way (though he doesn’t promise anything).
