Moving from one parish to another in Northern California during the 1970s, Father Oliver O'Grady quickly won each congregation's trust and respect. Unbeknownst to them, O'Grady was a dangerously active pedophile that Church hierarchy, aware of his predilection, had harbored for over 30 years, allowing him to abuse countless children. Juxtaposing an extended, deeply unsettling interview with O'Grady himself with the tragic stories of his victims, filmmaker Amy Berg bravely exposes the deep corruption of the Catholic Church and the troubled mind of the man they sheltered.

Really compelling for the most part in the explication of events and the access to the perpetrator, though the standard documentary device of "a journey to some place overseas to deliver a message or something" used in the last 20 minutes is muddled and rushed, and the movie loses a lot of steam as a result.

It’s a hard watch sometimes, at once disturbing, upsetting and infuriating. I have serious issues with Catholicism and this film does a good job of highlighting the fundamental problems with it. The information and footage sort of speaks for itself, so I’m not sure if it’s a truly well-made documentary, but it is an important one that I recommend people see.

A powerful documentary that couldn't quite decide whether it wanted to wallow in detailed recollections of pedophilia or to examine the institution that enabled it. Now the connection between the unrepentant pedophile and the church that groomed him doesn't quite get established, leaving room for him to be explained away as a bad apple who happened to have a difficult childhood.

This quality documentary is heartbreaking and will probably make you cry several times during the interviews. It also manages to be quite neutral despite the subject. Highly recommended.

Celibacy was introduced to Catholicism in the 4th century so that the church could claim a priest's property when he died, rather than having it go to some woman. Sounds legit. Where do I sign up? Top notch documentary that should leave you with knots in your stomach (unless you are a paedophile), though I have to question the director's decision to conduct interviews with O'Grady near parks and pools filled with young kids...now that is some Geraldo-level film-making if I've ever seen any.

Pedophilia is a predictable emotional groin kick for all people who subject themselves to the animalistic ritual of parenthood. Berg seems to understand this. She cleverly delivers her message with such shrewd restraint, that even a cynic like me is left with the conclusion, that you cannot deem yourself to be a moral being, if you don't denounce the perverted travesty that is the catholic church. If you don’t tear up during the dad's 'in my house' bit, then you should go see a head doctor.

O'Grady is a revolting man. It's a disgusting thought he is free, and roaming the streets in Ireland with his disgusting smirk on his face, and not fully understanding what he did wrong. And those motherfucking priests and popes are goddamn fucking ignorant. Pieces of shit

Fantastic doc looking into the decades of abuse committed by a Catholic priest in California. Fascinating in so many ways, the story builds from his crimes to how he was allowed to continue, onto much wider questions about paedophilia, the Church and organised religion as a whole. Plus it interviews almost everyone involved (including the self-delusional O'Grady himself). If certain time periods and information that's adhered to was actually expanded on, this would be solid five-star viewing.

It's shocking that O'Grady is so nonchalant when admitting and describing what he's done. This doc shines a light on the blatant corruption of the Catholic Church simply by telling what happened, not by giving their own opinions.

I just don't understand why the penalty for this sick fuck isn't higher. 7 years for ruining countless people's lives? God that pisses me off. O'Grady is one of the worst human beings to ever live and the fact that he's still alive is a disgrace to humanity. The comparison to the church as a corporation was interesting & 100% accurate.

A searing indictment of an utterly corrupt institution, basically a breeding ground for monsters like O'Grady. There are some fascinating insights amongst the harrowing testimony: the church instituted celibacy because then a deceased priest's possessions would pass to the church and not his family. Never mind that turning normal sexual urges into a sin was a terrible idea, just give us the cash...

Amy Berg has created a masterful documentary on the pedophile Priest Oliver O'Grady and how the Church hierarchy covered up his monstrous crimes.Through extensive interviews she conducted with Father O'Grady,the victims and court room testimony she offers up conclusive proof that the Church hierarchy knew what was going on and just shuffled this pedophile around so he could rape and abuse more kids.

Even taking the determinist standpoint doesn't excuse this utterly twisted sick fucker. Hopefully this man gets brutally murdered and whoever carries out this act gets thrown a parade. The audacity of sending those people letters to further haunt and humiliate them was pretty despicable and serves to show how sub-human O'Grady is. The fact that such actions are concealed and unpunished by the church only further proves why organized religion is a dangerous, bullshit scam.
