Jesus Comes To Play!
22 January 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

What a original and fresh take on Jesus. Can you imagine the son of God crashing a high stakes poker game? Shot in a film noir style with a quintessential femme fatale and other well drawn characters. Jesus Comes To Town reinvents the classic poker game where winning and losing could have spiritual consequences. The direction from John Iskander is innovative, confident and a lot of fun. This film has a great sense of humour and I'd love to see what Iskander could do with a longer format. The acting, cinematography, sound and art direction - overall production value - is state of the art. I would highly recommend this film.
