    Rabbit Hole

    "The weight of it."

    "Grief fills the room up of my absent child,

    Lies in his bed, walks up and down with me,

    Puts on his pretty looks, repeats his words,

    Remembers me of all his gracious parts,

    Stuffs out his vacant garments with his form."

    Shakespeare, King John

    The Rite

    Damnable


    "There's not a day in my life that I don't feel like a fraud. Other priests, doctors, lawyers - I talk to them all. I don't know anyone who hasn't felt that." Father Damien Karras, from The Exorcist (1973)


    As a Jesuit-trained, fallen-away Catholic, I approach The Rite, starring Anthony Hopkins, with reverence. Then I revert to agnosticism because I can't believe this is a serious movie.
