The Synopsis for First Reformed (2018) 1080p

Forty-six year old Reverend Ernst Toller is the pastor at the historic First Reformed Church in upstate New York. It is seen as the "tourist" church or the "souvenir shop" (its historical significance partly it being a stop on the underground railroad before the slaves crossed into Canada) by Abundant Life, which owns the church and which operates a modern self-named five thousand seat church overseen by Reverend Joel Jeffers. First Reformed is celebrating its two hundred fiftieth anniversary this year, for which a major event is planned, modest in size only at First Reformed itself although the dignitaries like the governor and mayor will be at attendance there, while the event will be simulcast at Abundant Life. Most of the speech-making will be done by local industrialist Ed Balq, a major benefactor of Abundant Life and who is the major donor for the necessary upgrades at First Reformed to be able to hold the event there, and for the event itself, while Toller's participation will ...

The Reviews for First Reformed (2018) 1080p

'Taxi Driver' meets Christianity in character piece of Academy Award-worthy proportionsReviewed byBrian SciroVote: 8/10

In terms of stories of religion and faith, it is not very often that I see ones that present me with an interesting story that shows a quandary of beliefs. It is also not often that I see stories of religion and faith that feature a character and performance that is on-par with that of Travis Bickle from 'Taxi Driver'.

In 'First Reformed', I got both, and it is absolutely enthralling.

Ethan Hawke stars as Reverend Holler, a man of strong religious beliefs that gets caught in the crossfire of a changing world, both in the realm of the church and of business. Thus, he spirals-into an inner turmoil that threatens to break more than just himself.

'First Reformed' pits the world of the church and Christianity of a yesteryear against the world of religion now, which is just as full of its own questionable pitfalls as classical religion is viewed to hold. Now, personally, I lack a horse in this battle of ethics.

At the same time, however, the subject was so intriguing to behold as the main conflict and themes of this intriguing story of 'religion-gone-Taxi Driver' that I couldn't help but stay deeply-entrenched in the conflict we see Ethan Hawke's character in.

Classical vs. Modern. Mega-churches vs. Traditionalist churches. Man vs. Society. We see all these conflicts unfold within 'First Reformed' and its tightly-packed run-time.

All the while, this conflict is portrayed in pitch-perfect fashion by Ethan Hawke, who delivers what I can only describe as his greatest performance of his career. His is truly next-level in this film, and I cannot describe enough to you about how captivating it is to watch Hawke in this film. He is spectacular in this, and an early frontrunner for the Academy Award without a doubt in my mind.

This film is not without its own bundle of flaws, to be fair. Certain sequences me made question the intent and decisions made by director Paul Schrader, and the ending itself is something I'm still not terribly sure I agree with in terms of its content. However, these flaws are not truly enough to take away from how much I abundantly enjoyed the majority of this film.

In the end, this film is all about faith. Faith being challenged. Faith being destroyed by a changing society around you. Faith's duality in man. Ultimately, the film is about Faith, and how Hope and Despair are ultimately intertwined in such an unsure and changing time in our world.

In the world of film, the tales of religion vary from spectacular to the mundane. In this case, I feel it falls somewhere on the higher end. While not spectacular, 'First Reformed' is certainly one of the best pieces of film that 2018 has had to offer thus far.

Once it hits wider release, you should definitely check it out. I guarantee the faith you put in it will be worth it~

Grim Portrait of a Man in CrisisReviewed byJared_AndrewsVote: 7/10

Some objectively good movies also make you feel good while watching them. Others crush you with weighty material, penetrating emotions and powerhouse performances. 'First Reformed' falls into the second category.

Legendary writer-director Paul Schrader returns to his past glorious form with this film. Some 40 years after writing 'Taxi Driver', he unleashes another portrait of a man experiencing a deep existential crisis as he sinks further into despair because of what he perceives to be a failing humanity.

Our new Travis Bickle is Reverend Ernst Toller (Ethan Hawke, in an Oscar-worthy performance). Toller runs a small church in New York state called First Reformed, which has a dwindling congregation of merely a dozen. Nearby, First Reformed's parent church, which has a following of thousands, is headed by Reverend Jeffers (Cedric the Entertainer). Toller and Jeffers clash over their ways to best perform the Lord's work. Toller rejects all physical possessions and scoffs at the financial success of the parent church, while Jeffers futilely attempts to convince Toller that wealth and religious commitment are not mutually exclusive.

Toller is not a well man. He struggles to take joy in any aspect of life. His past haunts him, as do the present failures of humanity. His despair becomes increasingly clear with each passing day that he writes in his diary, which was intended to be a form of prayer and offer clarity but instead only serves as a vehicle for him to psychologically self-punish. As his mental health suffers, so does his physical state. He's sick, probably dying, but he guzzles hard liquor daily despite the stomach pain it causes. Perhaps this too is self-punishment.

As Toller struggles to find a purpose for his remaining time on Earth, one appears before him when a pregnant parishioner, Mary (a career-best Amanda Seyfried), asks him to counsel her suicidal husband. Toller agrees, but the conversations don't lead to any relief for either party. Toller believes he finds a purpose, but anyone of sound mind would hardly consider it a Godly cause.

This all builds to a climactic scene that will leave some viewers in breathless awe and others in maddening disbelief. I took the final moments as a welcome relief after a punishing first 105 minutes, but some may see the abrupt pivot in tone as off putting. In any case, it's certainly spiritual trip and one that will stick with you long after the credits roll.

Excellent DramaReviewed bybillcr12Vote: 8/10

First Reformed is the name of an upstate New York church celebrating its' 250th anniversary. A reverend played by with intensity by Ethan Hawke, is a man at a crossroads regarding the meaning of life. Mary (Amanda Seyfried) asks the holy man for help with her troubled husband, Michael. Mikey is a fervent environmentalist who does not want to bring a baby into this dying planet. The rev gives him a pep talk. The inspirational talk is not successful and tragic events lead to some deep soul searching by the local minister. The enemy is a thinly disguised Koch brother type who is what we call a climate change denier. Paul Schraeder has obviously done his homework on the subject. Of course, those in the audience who listen to the Limbaugh's, Hannity's and Levin's of talk radio will hate this film, but hey, wake up people of earth; we are in deep trouble. The message is a good one but I was disappointed with the last fifteen minutes of this movie. The final scene is just downright silly. The first 90 percent was my best film of the year.
