John Ford applied his studied, expressionistic, high-art style to this 1947 adaptation of Graham Greene's The Power and the Glory, and the results are mixed. Henry Fonda is the outlaw priest stumbling through a Latin American revolution; Ford seems unable to connect with the character emotionally, so he drowns him in Christological imagery. Still, it's a better film than Ford's similarly themed The Informer, if only because the open-air setting brings out Ford's landscape sense. With Dolores Del Rio, Pedro Armendariz, and J. Carrol Naish; photographed by Buñuel's man, Gabriel Figueroa. 104 min.
