Amy Berg's documentary is a damning indictment of the hierarchy of the US Catholic Church who harboured paedophile priest Father Oliver O'Grady for over 30 years, in the full knowledge of his predilection, allowing him to abuse countless children in the parishes of Northern California. The film juxtaposes an extended, deeply unsettling interview with O'Grady himself with the tragic stories of his victims.

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.
The triumph of this documentary is that it not only condemns those who wilfully allowed a predator to abuse children for decades, but it gives us some fascinating insights into why they did so. Not just for personal gain, but because the whole philosophy of the church almost makes it inevitable. As one contributor, for example, points out, "If you have a philosophy that all sex is bad and you shouldn't be doing it, then having sex with a child becomes no more heinous a crime than having sex with a woman."
The raw pain of the victims is shown without apology and is heartbreaking. But it's the choice of such a wide range of contributors that really lifts this documentary into the extraordinary.
And beyond all of this, at its heart, is a chilling series of interviews with the abuser himself. A man who seemingly has no concept of having molested anyone, no understanding of the pain he has caused and the crimes he has committed. A man who smiles and winks at the camera, is flippant in his responses, who seems to believe that no one could possibly see him as anything other than amiable and charming or could have any negative feelings towards him. A man who states, with seemingly genuine bewilderment, that he's not sure if he actually molested anyone at all.Read more ›
A sobering documentary which should have more air time.
Very informative. When one of the parents breaks down it is gut wrenching.
The Catholic hierarchy seemed to think it was acceptably 'natural and normal' for priests to abuse girls because the priests were 'normal' men but abnormal for them to abuse boys because homosexuality is sinful! They kept moving the perverts about different parishes to continue their abuse rather than hand them in to the police. Totally evil that the Holy Roman Catholic church should invoke canon law as a devilish excuse for ignoring child rape.
The 'church' was more important than the innocent child victims. Are not children the church, which is made up of people and not evil masculine-made laws.
It is totally mind boggling that the pervert priest in this film gets away with all his abuse unpunished! He is certainly from another planet as regards repentance.
