Duncan Gray's rating of the film Reality

I remember the stir Reality caused after Cannes about whether it did/didn't deserve a prize over Holy Motors. But now that that's a matter for the historical record, don't brush the film aside: moving to a strange rhythm, it has on its side one of the most wonderfully weird metaphors for organized religion in Italy (and belief systems in general) and an ending that's beautiful and just a little bit terrifying.
