Diary of a Country Priest (1951)

Robert Bresson directs Claude Laydu, Nicole Ladmiral and Rachel Bérendt in this French arthouse drama where a sick priest is ostracised by his parish.

Boring as balls. Considered one of the greatest films ever made, this for pretentious nerds who don’t like movies. They don’t like Groucho outwitting a countess. They don’t like Popeye Doyle chasing an assassin under the elevated train tracks. They don’t like Harry meeting Sally. They don’t like Brad Pitt fighting Bruce Lee. They wanna watch sickly fey priests mope about in gut rot squalor because they think it makes them better than us. Blind faith in talk and symbols over action and marvel.
