Hail, Caesar! (2016)
Jack Gurney, 14th Earl of Gurney, who doesn't want to be called Jack and who, according to his wishes, is called Bert, thinks he's Jesus Christ and is suspected by his uncle to be a Communist. In "Hail, Caesar!", Burt Gurney is the communist screenwriters' "messianic" patron, who in an iconographic scene takes leave of them and embarks on a passage to the Soviet Union (their "heaven"), one of several conflations and juxtapositions of Christianity and Communism in the film.
