Catholics (1973)

Catholics (1973)

Directed by: Jack Gold

Starring: Trevor Howard, Raf Vallone, Martin Sheen

Oh, those wacky Catholics, what will they get up to next?! Worshiping God and being monks or something? Haha, what a bunch of kidders. Those guys kill me.

Martin Sheen is a visiting priest who goes to a secluded island monastery where the monks have been holding a traditional latin mass. Apparently this is against the greater wishes of the church or something, and what follows is basically a long conversation about traditionalism vs the creeping modernization of the world.

For being a pretty boring presentation, there’s some interesting stuff in this movie. It’s nothing really new or original, but I’ve definitely seen worse and more boring films than Catholics.
