Storyline

Four actors compete for the role of Jesus - a black revolutionary, a bisexual hippie, a Jew, and a feminist. When all four are rejected, they hit the road on bad-ass motorcycles, bound for glory in New York City. But when a run-in with a gang of Elvises ends in murder, they find themselves taken prisoner in a little town called Jackville - where folk don't take kindly to blasphemers. The Jesuses fall prey to an evil conspiracy that can only lead to the Apocalypse. Written by Angie Louise

wacky, bloody
13 January 2005 | by FilmAholicAnonymousSee all my reviews

A friend of mine was able to get ahold of a DVD of this flick and brought it to a movie night - Oh my God it blew me away! Wacked. But brilliant, too, in it's dark, harsh wit (nothing is sacred, not even goats). Definitely different, definitely surprising and delightful. I love independent film and occasionally the raw freshness of first films (that is, if they're not just trying to emulate Hollywood), and this had that fresh touch without being clumsy, and enough real smarts to make me feel like I was on the ground floor of something great.

It's a comedy that makes fun of fear-fueled "family" values and all things self- righteous. Four actors meet at a casting call for the role that each of them has fashioned their (very different) lives after. The role: Jesus. Who gets the part? None of them. So they hit the road together, but end up facing a horrible world filled with back- woods xenophobes and a coke-snorting gang of Elvises. How will each of them use their image of holiness to concur these evils?

Can I just say that the Black Power Jesus was fantastic. Like most things holy: beautiful, powerful, and ridiculous.
