Confession (Deadly Secrets) Reviews
He was 25, but damn it, he was so good.
Luther Scott is a sociopath locked in numerous Catholic schools by his parents, who ship him aout in hopes of him settling his rebellious ways and finding something to take seriously. His underground business of selling such things as Playboy and cigarettes is suddenly caput when a classmate, David Bennett, goes to one of the fathers; the result turns deadly as the next day he's found dead in the dumpster.
That sets off the basic plot of the film, with Luther trying to cover his tracks and appear innocent while his best friend and accomplice, Robbie, teeters nervously to the brink of paranoia. Except nothing goes as planned.
The ending will get you, as will Chris' emotional range.
This is a low-budget starter film from a director and writer with little experience under the belt and the only actor in the cast with real job under his belt is Bruce Davison and Cameron Daddo. Please do not go into this film expecting fireworks and the special effects of Tinseltown.
It's an okay film. Nothing special, It certainly is not fond of the Catholic Church, but then again, is anyone fond of the Catholic Church? Having been beaten by nuns and sexually abused by priests, I have my issues with Catholics. Decently produced, nicely acted.
