    Don't doubt "Doubt"

    Don't doubt "Doubt's" intelligence & smarts. The movie makes you sit up & take notice from the opening scene, and never lets go of your conscience. And who would have thought Meryl Streep could top Meryl Streep, but indeed she does from the moment she incaptures the audience.The cast as a whole sweeps you a way with their bravo performances. Lucky us.

    Shanley scores, both as writer and director.

    When I think of a romantic writers, one writer always makes the top 10 list. That would be John Patrick Shanley. Even in his "serious" efforts, there is always an underlying romantic vein.

    That is just one reason why it is so particularly nice to see an effort like DOUBT.

    DOUBT, written and directed by Shanley, is very good movie, because the writer not only keeps getting better with each subsequent work, but as a director as well.

    Shanley directs his movie, with a sure hand. He knows and likes his subjects, especially his lead character.

    And Meryl Steep is wonderful as the lead character in this movie about a Catholic school sister (early 60s), who thinks that a priest has made sexual overtures to an altar boy.

    Streep digests her characters, makes them her own and then, rather than go off with some wild idea about who the character should be, always seems to respect the writer and stays true to the writer's vision of who that character is.

    Amy Adams, Viola Davis and Philip Seymour Hoffman also lend their fine talents to DOUBT.

    I found this to be an excellent movie.
