Church of Film says
FREE. Wednesday, October 7th. 8pm. A saintly monk (Franco Nero) falls into a trap of carnal sin, and covering his hypocrisies while satisfying the needs of his flesh leads him further down a path of sexual deviancy, violence, and into the Black Arts! Around him looms the threat of the Inquisition, and the guilt over his own crimes and his pact with the Devil. A pet project of Luis Bunuel's, who had long wanted to adapt M.G. "Monk" Lewis's famous gothic novel and finally drew up the screenplay, but was forced to abandon the project due to censorship concerns. But behold, it came to fruition anyway! Bunuel shuffled his screenplay over to French and Italian producers, who assembled a cast of crew of Bunuelites to make the film a reality. Features cinematography by the brilliant Sacha Vierny and a score by Pierre Piccioni. At the North Star Ballroom.
