    this film is a direct appeal to those apolitical types, those that 'try to make the best of what we've got', those that 'see both sides of the argument'. never has a film made by two teenagers & released in 1964 been more pertinent than today, when the rise of neo-fascism threatens us once again. do not get caught in the crossroads. do not dismiss claims of 'all lives matter', anti-refugee and anti-protest views as harmless and non-reactionary. these opinions have roots, and the tree is rotten.

    Diary of a Country Priest

    ★★

    I generally enjoy films with religion as a central theme, especially involving crises of faith, so I had high hopes when I began this. I can see why it's so revered, but unfortunately it's not for me. The tone was too bleak for my taste, and the editing was stark and austere—lots of dissolves, lots of close-ups of our priest looking miserable. I can't fault the acting, though: he looks truly tortured. I saw hell behind his eyes.
