One of the most powerfully intimate films ever made about the final stages of life, 'The End' is a profound and moving chronicle of five hospice patients whose stories are in turns honest, humorous, and heart-breaking.
An adult Ohio firefighter confronts the Priest who abused him as a child.
A great, moving movie! Kirby Dick's films have always shown not only a light touch but an unerring impulse for the right emotional detail, revealing gesture and sense of when to pull back. In "Twist of Faith" he lets the points make themselves: the Church condones child abuse, they cover their tracks and lie about it. Dick's use of church music is especially telling, as is his judicious implementation of his "chain camera" technique: giving subjects their own video-cams to record their thoughts, document outward aspects of their lives and make occasional but heartbreaking confession. If only Art could make Change! Now THAT would be a Twist.
