Calvary is a film that punches you in the gut from the first line of dialogue. From that scene on, you and the main character are put on edge, and it’s a journey to see what he will do with such a significant piece of information. The rest of the film is just a series of interactions between this priest and his parishioners which was really fun to watch. However, because of the weight of what he is told at the beginning, none of these moments feel superfluous. It all has a purpose for him, and I suspect much of it has a deeper symbolic meaning (that I’d love to explore.) Also, for the viewer it all feels a bit like a mystery, as we try to deduce the identity of the man from the first scene.  


I loved this aspect to the full story, and it kept me on the edge of my seat despite the fact that the film takes its time. Under other circumstances I think I’d call a film like this boring, but because they hooked me early, I was happy to go along for the ride. Brendan Gleeson is just marvelous in the lead role because he has a kindly nature, but also can be harsh and brutally honest. We are allowed to see his weaknesses and his strengths and it’s easy to get on his side. The scenes with his daughter (played by Kelly Reilly) were particularly poignant, and their final phone conversation felt like the writer/director spelling out the thesis statement of the entire film within just a few lines of dialogue. The ending of Calvary is a tough one to watch specially online, but not totally unexpected. It left me wanting a little more, so I could know what happened next, but I suppose that’s the sign of a successful film when you’re left wanting instead of getting too much. Calvary is a movie that did a great job of impacting me, but I suspect it won’t be until the second or third time I see it that I will fully understand what John Michael McDonagh was doing with this film. Of course, the fact that I want to free download the movie and watch it again once or twice is a very good sign.
