Movie Reviews

Sacrifice in the Name of the Vatican
Sir Hatton | 10/11/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Along with the video `El Sacerdote', these films give a good contrast about the conflicts priests' experience that is contrary to Vatican policy.
*In both cases, their carnal desires were similar but how they came to a resolution was radically different. In the ending of `El Sacerdote', the priest made an observation to Jesus on the Cross about the cause of his pain, which astounded me.
*Their convictions about the Christian message were also different. One was a liberal who preached the message of giving to the poor in an affluent congregation and wrote articles in a newspaper that conflicted with Vatican policy. The other was a conservative who resisted change in Vatican policy.
*These films present the lives of Catholic priests in a sympathetic manner. In light of the pedophile cases within the Catholic Church, I highly recommend both of these films so the viewer can understand the personal turmoil priests face within their own circle and the general public.
*By the way, some have tagged this movie as gay, child abuse, coming of age by boys, and male nudity, which is absurded. The movie was mainly about religion and had a few nude adult female scenes and several heterosexual copulation between adults."
