  1. it wasn't that great. The source material was important, and the performances were engaging and thus the film merits viewing, but it is not a great film by any stretch.

    But while the topic is hot, let's remember that a Catholic newspaper reported on this in 1985 and was ignored, and there is a much more engaging, incredible story out there about a group called the Legion of Christ. You want to take down scams posing as religion, that is ground zero, and the material is so crazy you couldn't make it up.

  2. I FIND IT INTERESTING THAT THE MALE ANCHOR THAT IS COMMENTING ABOUT SEX ABUSE IS AN ABUSER HIMSELF… THIS IS JUST SHAMEFUL… HOW MANY HAVE HAD TO LIVE WITH PAIN AND TRAUMA BECAUSE OF ALL THE CORRUPTS AND DISGUSTING GROUPS OF PEOPLE WITH NO MORAL STANDINGS…

  3. The ‘Spotlight’ Crew Went After The Catholic Church But Are Silent On Harvey

    Posted By Amber Randall and Grace Carr On 6:19 PM 10/20/2017

    Eight of the nine “Spotlight” crew members who loudly condemned the Catholic Church’s sexual abuse scandal have remained quiet about the rampant sexual assault allegations levied against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein.

    The “Spotlight” crew were quick to condemn the systemic sexual abuse of young boys by Catholic priests, but the actors, director and producers, many of whom have close ties to Weinstein, have not spoken out against the decades of Weinstein’s alleged harassment and assault on young women in Hollywood. The Oscar-winning movie is based on the true story of Boston Globe journalists who investigated allegations of sexual abuse of young boys in the Catholic church.

    Of the six actors on the film, so far only Mark Ruffalo has spoken about the Weinstein allegations. The rest, John Slattery, Stanley Tucci, Liev Schreiber, Billy Crudup and Rachel McAdams have been silent on the matter, despite repeated phone calls and emails from The Daily Caller News Foundation requesting comment on the matter.

    McAdams’ publicist was out of town and unavailable for comment.

    Ruffalo gave a somewhat tepid response to the slew of allegations against Weinstein, referring to the alleged rapes and harassment as a “sickness” before calling on other men in power to “do better.”

    “I hope Harvey gets the help that he needs. This is — it’s a sickness,” he said on the red carpet.

    “Spotlight” director Tom McCarthy and producers Michael Sugar and Peter Lawson have yet to comment publicly on the Weinstein scandal. It’s an odd move from the crew as most of them have ties to Weinstein and have worked with him over the years.

    Lawson served as the vice president of acquisitions and co-productions at The Weinstein Company, the film studio founded by Weinstein and his brothers. The actors themselves have also starred in numerous high profile Weinstein films, ranging from “Southpaw” “Begin Again,” “The Butler,” “Scream” and “Dedication.” Slattery is currently producing a film with the Weinstein Company.

    Despite their lukewarm handling of the Weinstein allegations, the actors had no problem forcefully condemning the abuse done by the Catholic Church. Ruffalo participated in a “Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests” (SNAP) protests outside a Los Angeles church to demand the names of the priests who assaulted young boys.

    The producer of the film, Sugar, also took a moment to lecture Pope Francis on how he should be handling the church during an Oscar acceptance speech. Slattery also routinely talked about how important it was to expose the Church’s wrongdoings.

  4. Everyone should watch "conspiracy of silence" about the franklin cover up, best eye opening documentary I've ever seen but was banned in the United States because it goes right to the top and the masses aren't even angry lol

  5. after hearing mike speak i gotta say, Marl Ruffalo's impersonation of hin was pretty off…he overdid the lisp/speech inlwdimwnt thibg way too much….was distracting at sone pts unnecessaryily distracting

  6. you must watch this. its about exposing the truth and not about sexual abuse or gratifing urges. its about the real danger of not telling. excellent movie.

  7. "The priest is the direct manifestation of God" Their should be a law to control just how crazy a religion can get. If you look at the Israelites who were marched around a circle in the wilderness for 40 years and fed only bread and quail they were brainwashed into committing genocide. They were psychological tortured for 40 years enduring the following from their God who:: Burned complainers to death, forced the survivors to eat quail until it literally came out their noses, sent "fiery serpents" to bite people for complaining about the lack of food and water, and killed 14,700 for complaining about his killings? Here is what they were commanded to do? Samuel 15:2-3
    2 He is going to punish the people of Amalek because their ancestors opposed the Israelites when they were coming from Egypt. 3 Go and attack the Amalekites and completely destroy everything they have. Don't leave a thing; kill all the men, women, children, and babies; the cattle, sheep, camels, and donkeys."
    And they were sick enough in the head to carry out the orders.

  8. Watch the documentary deliver us from evil. It includes the priest who abused children and is retired to Ireland. He actually tells his own story. It's a very raw and chilling thing to view.

  9. F YOU BIGOT MARK RUFALO. I'LL BET YOU HAD YOUR ASS OFF YOUR SEAT WHEN YOU HEARD PATRICIA ARQUETTE SAY 'MARK . . . " ONLY TO SIT BACK DOWN WHEN SHE SAID 'RYLANCE." LOL LOL LOL
