"The Confessional" is a suspense thriller in the vein of Hitchcock. Character driven, the film relies on performance and plot rather than sex and gratuitous violence, a refreshing change. Peter Quartaroli delivers an amazingly nuanced and riveting performance as Leonard, a disturbed priest. He sends chills down your spine with the slightest turn of his head or smoldering smile. Much to his credit director James Anthony Cotton is able to capture these nuances and etch them in your mind where they dwell long after the movie is over. Mr. Cotton has stated that this is the first film in a trilogy. Here's to hoping that this film finds distribution and Mr. Cotton is able to get a budget worthy of his directorial abilities for the next two.
