The Rite

The Rite is a very good movie.  Anthony Hopkins is of course brilliant, but the scope of his character in this one is just awesome.  He goes from his soft rich tones to this demonic whisper then chanting like an auctioneer as he is possessed by a demon.  Having taken stage makeup at JSU with Freddy Clements I know the work involved in creating the looks he wore.  It was splendid.  He was his usual pallid self, then went into this reddish, purple then burnt appearing face that seemed to bubble as his student attempted to cast the demon out.  It is not a movie for the faint of heart, but it is brilliant.
