By the Grace of God, about a Catholic priest pedophilia case in Lyons, is a fine film, distinguished by ecumenical (no pun intended) editing, a vigorously written screenplay, and a mixture of tones. It felt good to watch a film whose results met its ambitions.

Yeah, that is very spot on. Very fine. Not my favorite of the year or anything, but a pretty difficult story executed very well.

I seem to like Peter von Kant more than most responders, and I may "like" it more than the Fassbinder "original."

Everything Went Fine, getting distribution now despite being made before PVK, is just wonderful. I don't know how this dude does it.

Every time this guy comes up I remember when he defended the legalization of sex work (good) with the statement "deep down, every woman wants to be a whore".

switch out "every woman" for "everybody" let's go

I dunno man, sounds like pretty draining work all told and "deep down" I'd prefer not to work at all.

Plus yknow some people are asexual and whatnot.
