You know, when you go into a confessional, you have the option of walking around the divider and just talking to the priest directly. I feel the need to get that out there because movies and TV shows always go for the much more cinematic grill thing. It just looks cool. Catholicism in general has a lot of style, which is why you don’t see many spooky religious-themed horror movies about Protestants.
Except, of course, for The Rapture, featuring David…wait for it…Duchovny. Kismet!
