When I first saw this film, it was at 2am on a Sunday morning. Half awake, staring blindly into the screen, what I saw defied description. The story of Jesus Christ told in an Old West setting with Jesus' character wearing a zoot suit? Count me in!
The dialogue is extremely non-sequitur, and the characters are hilarious! Herve' Villachaise is wonderful as a condensed cowboy married to a 6-foot tall man named "Petunia".
I highly recommend this movie simply on the basis that it is so bizarre (even though Greaser doesn't think he's bizarre enough). Oh, and knowing that Robert Downey directed this puts a few things into perspective as well (yes, that's Robert Downey Sr., as in Father of R D Jr.)
