The Best Foreign Films: Priest (1994)

Some of the best foreign films are also the most controversial ones. Priest is one of those movies. It was easily the most controversial film of the year because it touched on two of the most sensitive topics, faith and homosexuality.


Synopsis

Father Greg Pilkington is assigned to St. Mary's parish in inner-city Liverpool. As he struggles to get into the ways of a peculiar parish, he discovers that Father Matthew Thomas is engaged in a sexual relationship with a woman. This leads him to question his faith and the institution he is serving.

Review

The movie is defined by questions. The movie was backwards in that it didn’t provide an answer to the questions being raised in the entire movie. Instead, it deconstructed situations, asked questions and left it unanswered.

It starts with a basic conflict.
