Great for NYC grit, unrequited love
15 August 2004 | by (Rockville, Maryland, USA) – See all my reviews

Every New York film cannot be a lasting classic. This having been said, Last Rites has been wrongly berated from the outset for having a "corny" and/or predictable plot line. Whether you consider it a church film with mafia overtones or a mafia film with church overtones, Berenger's priest shows subtle vulnerability that escalates to overwhelming vulnerability and you have to be curious as to where it will end. Isn't this the essence of the entertainment -- to hold interest? The plot progression was thoughtful -- and even clever -- enough to catch me off guard enough to retain my curiosity level. Although a true veteran, I could not foresee the ending. Can't some films be for fun? This is one to enjoy: It's a "buddy" movie with a twist.
