Great ensemble films tend to have typecast actors to convey immediate emotional/psychological jurisdictions around their characters. George Carlin epitomizes such, instantly embodying Cardinal Glick's hippocracy. I found it ironic that Carlin's Cardinal is interested in changing the image of Catholicism while Fiorentino's Bethany, a bored church-going Catholic, is disinterested in changing the fate of Catholicism and human existence. Ultimately, Bethany saves Catholicism and existence. Therefore, I assume that the image of Catholicism through the Cardinal is effectively changed for the better. Is this your unsaid assertion? If so, then is Dogma your proffering, on some parallel level, that religious revamps are okay if not morally justifiable, despite the hippocracies of those doing the 'splaining and rectonfying?
