Irish-Catholic brothers Tom and Desmond Spellacy chose ostensibly noble professions — Tom (Robert Duvall) is a cop, Desmond (Robert De Niro) a priest — but neither is a stranger to corruption. Tom betrayed his badge years ago working as a bagman for a local pimp (Charles Durning); now he sees Desmond aiding the crook’s dealings with the Church. While True Confessions boasts big themes (redemption, reconciliation) and big names, the plot and performances are painfully subtle. It proffers too many details and not enough payoff.
EXTRAS None.
