So… to open with there’s a pyramid of babies that Jude Law crawls out from. And a whole dream sequence with him extolling (from the papal balcony) the virtues of sex and abortion and masturbation. He smokes cigarettes in the papal palace and drinks a diet cherry coke a day instead of Italian coffee. Then there’s the “ma” who he refers to who’s also a nun who takes him into an orphanage. Oh and he confesses to not believing in god – which may or may not be a joke. but probably not.
We get it: it’s not your father’s Pope. It’s “The Young Pope.” And it’s not good. Very not good.
Really, really short review: Nope to the Young Pope.
