Hitchcock & The Priesthood

I just had the chance to watch one of Alfred Hitchcock's lesser-known films, "I Confess". In it, a priest falls under suspicion for a murder. Hitchcock focuses a great deal on the mysterious nature of the priesthood, no doubt drawing upon his own faith- and the seal of the confessional plays an important role in the plot. A beautiful film.
