Storyline

In San Juan, Puerto Rico, after two gristly murders, the murderer has used the victims' blood to paint the walls by the bodies. An agnostic Jesuit priest, whose brother was the first victim, visits the crime scene: look for a talented abstract-expressionist painter who's going through a spiritual crisis and is angry at God, the priest says. The police ask Father Michael to continue to assist them, and he visits Bohemian haunts an artist might frequent. Father Michael's own history unfolds, too: he's a painter, he has an ex-girlfriend in San Juan, and he's attracted to Mary, a life-drawing model. Soon all fingers point to an aging local artist, Lewis Garou. Case closed? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

I Enjoyed This Movie
20 December 2013 | by jcromwell66762See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this film, and for someone who is neither a Dennis Hopper fan, and the last thing I remember seeing Richard Grieco in was "21 Jump Street" (now I feel old) I really was able to appreciate the depth of the characters, and the overall storyline had my attention from the very start. For an impulse buy movie, it is one I will watch again and again. The ending had me confused at first, but after reviewing the final scenes (I am not going to divulge anything specific) I was able to figure out where it was going. I think the depictions of the Catholic church were really good, and especially loved Father Killans "confession". Its sad they butchered the final cut in post production, but when it comes to films, writers/directors are interested in art and vision, whereas editors and studios are interested in run time and box office gross. In my opinion, not really a fair trade off.
