Diary of a Country Priest - Criterion Collection (1954)

As I continue to "consume" media during these days between calls, I just finished watching
Diary of a Country Priest
, which is based on an excellent piece of French literature by the same title, author Georges Bernanos, and is directed by one of the "great" French cinematographers, Robert Bresson. The last line is worth the whole time watching the movie, and a scene in the middle that is a cross between speaking the prophetic, counseling, and doing confession, is true in a way that a move in 2004 could never be.
