Let's go see Calvary at the Nick

I will be posting a movie for us to see every to every other week, ones that I think are exceptional and possible Academy Award performances.  This week is Calvary.  See review below:

Calvary’ may be 2014′s first masterpiece

Calvary

Written and directed by John Michael McDonagh

Ireland/UK, 2014

Director John Michael McDonagh wastes no time in establishing the stakes of Calvary. In a darkened confessional, Father James Lavelle (Brendan Gleeson) is told that he is going to die in a week. The man planning to kill the priest explains it is exactly because Father Lavelle has done nothing wrong that he is going to die. Of the two McDonagh brothers, John Michael is known for his irreverent comedy The Guard, but with this latest release he joins the ranks of the most fatalistic of Irish artists.

With the seven days allotted to the father, he seeks to sort out his affairs while attending to his parish. The locals in question are made up of Chris O’Dowd, Aidan Gillen, Dylan Moran, M. Emmet Walsh and Isaach De Bankolé all existing at varying levels of disillusionment with the church »

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
