First Reformed

Paul Shrader is back to peak form as he drops us into a mans quest for redemption and understanding while he descends into madness. Ending with a dreamlike carnal pleasure you can rest assured that the final abruptness is also our man succumbing to his martyrdom. That door was locked and that glass was empty, Mary was the manifestation of his Holy Ground.  Ethan Hawke is mesmerizing and powerful, you can find him somewhere between the first and second floor.
