Storyline

Sean (Colm O'Leary), an Irish immigrant to America, finds his heart and mind in disarray. Having returned from military service in Afghanistan, he befriends Ike (Will Oldham, A.K.A. Bonnie 'Prince' Billy), a strong willed evangelical, who endeavors to ensure his salvation. Inundated by a relentless fragility. Sean is confronted by a choice between the temptation of certainty and the chaos of the world around him. A meditation on friendship, human need and frailty, NEW JERUSALEM explores the allure and limitations of modern utopian belief. Written by Anonymous

A Rehash of The Builder
19 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

Basically a rehash of the same theme--- the world of a depressed individual--- that was explored in THE BUILDER, a film Alverson produced a year earlier. Only this time everything is transferred to a used tire shop. Lots of day to day minutiae, images which offer little of any substance with which the viewer can begin to understand what is transpiring in the protagonist's mind or what, if any, message the film is intended to convey.
