Some great stuff!
My favorite shot is through the confessional booth (I assume) of the the priest walking,.. it's amazing!
Your last 3rd is great. You're first 2/3 is hit and miss. Some shot's look epic and cinematic while others look like video.
If you're demonstrating versatility then I think your reel is great, but if you're going for cinema I think you should chop out a 1/3 of your reel and keep just your best work.
Shoot for 2 minutes and keep only the awesome stuff. Stuff like the vet, light rail, and ocean seem like stock footage.
I love all the religious stuff except the rack focus from the glasses, it looks like a lens adapter.
Cool stuff though, you told me to be harsh so I hope it's cool that I was!

And, well, that's totally personal, but I don't really like the typo of your title card... Sometime more subdued would seem more fitting....
But, anyhow - I must finish on a bright note : you really have some way cool shots : I really enjoyed the lighting of the shower scene.
