I’m collecting my thoughts about “The Mission” (1986). 


Above is Spanish Jesuit priest, Father Gabriel (Jeremy Irons), climbing a waterfall so that he can convert the Guariani Indians in South America and build a mission in their village.  While doing so, he tries to defend the community against the cruelty of Portuguese colonials, who are trying to enslave the Guariani.  This image illustrates the amount of effort that one man went to evangelize a community.


My initial thoughts as the seven children canoed away were: humanity is cruel.
