From Catholic World Report, K. V. Turley on Almost Holy. Is Mokhnenko a Street Pastor or Vigilante?
A man dressed in clerical garb is seen addressing a crowd. He tells them, with a visible passion, that if the state won’t stop local drug dealers then he will. And, as we see later, he does. We have witnessed this same man earlier touring the streets of Mariupol, Ukraine, gathering up abandoned children and taking them to a place of safety. Later, we see him smashing down doors to rescue a woman from a life of abuse. Meet Gennadiy Mokhnenko: a man of God, or, as his critics maintain, a self-styled vigilante? Almost Holy (www.almostholyfilm.com) tells his tale.
