| Intriguing story where the mysterious organization of the Freemasons is almost a character
The Freemason is a film that surpassed my expectations. I had become accustomed to see Freemasonry mentioned or alluded to in dialogs and film plots before, but this time Freemasonry plays a leading role. I have the utmost respect for the timeless and mysterious fraternity of Freemasonry, which makes me critical of any time it is portrayed in films and documentary. However, I was pleasantly surprised and delighted that Freemasonry was portrayed with such eloquence and respect.
The film begins with a murder mystery, which initially caught my attention, but the subsequent twists and turns kept me guessing throughout the entire film.
I am somewhat knowledgeable about Freemasonry and I greatly appreciated that the scenes including "Masonic Ceremonies" revealed enough to peek someones interest, yet respected the privacy and discretion of the organization by not revealing too much.
Overall, it was a very enjoyable film and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good murder mystery or suspense film.
