Hypocrites is an amazingly complex film in both narrative and technique, following the parallel stories of an early Christian ascetic and a modern minister, with most actors in duel roles. Gabriel (Courteney Foote) is a medieval monk who devotes himself to completing a statue of "Truth" only to be murdered by a mob when his work turns out to be an image of a naked women. The contemporary Gabriel is the pastor of a large urban congregation for whom religion is a matter of appearances, not beliefs. The hypocrisy of the congregation is exposed by a series of vignettes in which the Naked Truth, literally portrayed by a nude women, reveals their appetites for money, sex and power.
