I found the experience of watching these movies to be very similar. In both we’re presented with characters suffering a great deal, the movies demand that we regard them as saints, yet virtually no attempt is made to dramatize their suffering. The filmmakers just take it for granted that we’ll be as moved by the subject matter as they are.
EDIT: It occurs to me that JACKIE belongs in this category, too.
