5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best documentaries I've ever seen in my life, 26 Oct. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Deliver Us From Evil [DVD] (DVD)
This is a very important documentary, it isn't just about a child molesting priest, but also touches on subjects like the meaning of religion, conspiracies, cover ups, politics, you name it.

There were moments when I felt deeply disturbed. Moments of sheer anger towards both Father O' Grady, Cardinal Roger Mahoney who essentially denies just about everything of O' Grady's actions, and the Catholic church for covering up the whole issue of these child molesting priests.

And also, moments of sadness, when a married couple are being interviewed and blamed themselves, I practically burst into tears.

The whole thing plays out like a real thriller, with O' Grady as the criminal, Mahoney as the criminals boss, poor innocent victims, and a hero in the form of Father Tom Doyle who takes strong action to make sure these evil people are being exposed and kept a close eye on.

This is a documentary which is a true eye opener, and something you'll never forget for the rest of your life. No wonder it received an academy award nomination. It should have won but it probably went to that preachy fool Michael Moore (whose more into seeking self recognition and respect than the actual subject matter, waving a flag around and looking like a fat hero).

If you don't shed a tear or two in a couple of scenes, then you really have no soul.

A five star documentary if ever I saw one.
