    Startlingly intimate and nuanced. Stacked with fine performances. Far better than the Tomatometer would tell you.

    I feel ashamed for ever writing off John Michael as the lesser McDonagh. Martin writes sad clowns that cling to life, but Father James is confounded and beleagured by it, and is the most humane character in the brothers' films combined. A stunningly refined depiction of faith in a faithless world.
