Deliver Us from Evil (2006, Amy Berg)

Just looking at this poster gives me the chills now. I'm not gonna write too much about this one. Every now and then there is a film that just shakes you to your core and this is one of those films. This is a truly heartbreaking, disturbing, and deeply emotional documentary. It really is one of the best accomplishments in filmmaking of the past year and one of the best films I have seen so far this decade. This documentary is considered to be the 3rd best reviewed film of all time in Rotten Tomato history and there is reason why it has that title.

A lot of people might be turned off by the subject matter at hand but even though this one is a very tough watch it is a mandatory watch for anyone who cares about the power that film can have.

Truly an incredible film that was robbed of an Oscar last year.
