Contemporary biopics no longer adhere to the traditional means of telling the entire life story of a subject. Nowadays, audiences are only given a small fraction of it. But it is in that stage of life that truly defines the subject.

If you’re after a short, quick blast on Netflix, look no further than The Confession. Initially a webisode series, now compiled into one 60-minute adventure, The Confession features a stunning cast including Kiefer Sutherland and John Hurt, as the short film delves into the shocking confession of a violent assassin to a shocked priest.

What begins as an acknowledgment of countless murders evolves into a lengthy and deep discussion on moral values and existentialism. As the discussion takes its turns, we flashback to The Confessor’s (Kiefer Sutherland) jobs – specific ones indicating the variation of the needs of his employment, while The Priest (John Hurt) is forced into a situation where he must continue listening.
