Excellent movie, great acting from all of them, and the excuses the Church makes to cover up the abuses are so well integrated in the movie you just believe them.

R.I.P. Philip Seymour Hoffman. The Bronx, 1964, a Catholic school has just admitted their first black student. Soon, one of the sister suspects a charismatic priest of having an inappropriate relationship with the student, and the revelation may tear apart the community. Meryl Streep, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Amy Adams all do fantastic Jobs in they roles in this brilliant film.

Doubt is a pure vehicle for acting, combining brilliantly written words with a stunning cast. Meryl Streep is, as always, acting perfection, but her intensity is matched by Philip Seymour Hoffman (also always good,) and a surprisingly subdued and haunting performance from the usually bubbly Amy Adams. The film explores a difficult subject without moralizing.

After watching it, I can see why this movie was nominated for so many awards

Talk about a smart script. The movie made me want to see the play, because all the best moments were dialogue and all the weakest moments were attempts to be "cinematic." A few lines aside (Meryl Streep throwing her Rosary to the floor) it was very respectful and should be esteemed for creating discussion.

Superb drama with brilliant casting. Based on a play, it does at times feel a little stagey, but it wasn't much of distraction for me. I love that nothing is truly resolved, leaving each person to decide for themselves what happened.

A fantastic film with top-notch acting. i was also a big fan of the fast cutting of the editor and the I found the cinematography to be excellent as well. The angles made you feel claustrophobic and held the suspense even when nothing was happening. A must see.

"Doubt" is probably the most superbly acted, decently directed, and beautifully written films ever made. Based on John Patrick Shanley's award-winning play, "Doubt" draws its brilliance from the fact that there is doubt on everything. Is he really a monster? Is Sister Aloysious simply hateful? Is Sister James too naive for her own good? And is Mrs. Muller a terrible mother or does she not have any other choice? This movie was brilliant. Though, it wasn't robbed at the Oscars. It was simply not the best of the year. Up there, though.

A GREAT! film with a PERFECT cast that's gives superb and flawless performances. Meryl Streep is outstanding and should have won the Oscar as Best Actress. Amy Adams is fantastic and Phillip Seymour Hoffman is is amazing. The film is brilliantly made and wonderfully written. Why it was not nominated for Best Picture is beyond me.

A telling drama of the judgments put upon by others without certainty; Streep and Hoffman are excellent, but it's the handling that rings true as the script leaves the viewer to make up their own minds about what happened: a trick that works for those who like to think for themselves, but an obvious frustration for those who like to have things spelled out to them. Final Grade: B+
