Aditya Roy Kapoor,
An insurance lawyer goes out on the town to celebrate an upcoming promotion with his co-worker, Jeff. But their night takes a turns bizarre when Frank ingests a hallucinogen that completely alters his perception of the world.
John Turturro plays Jesus Quintana in 'Going Places,' a film about a trio of misfits whose irreverent, sexually charged dynamic evolves into a surprising love story as their spontaneous and flippant attitude towards the past or future backfires time and again, even as they inadvertently perform good deeds. When they make enemies with a gun-toting hairdresser, their journey becomes one of constant escape from the law, from society and from the hairdresser, all while the bonds of their outsider family strengthen.
How you feel about this movie is likely influenced by what it is you are expecting. The Jesus is this movie is not the biblical one but the dodgy bowler from the Big Lebowski. However this is not a Coen brothers production but one written and directed by John himself. Once you make the adjustment from this not being another Coen brothers vehicle and don't have any expectations of their quirkiness then you can enjoy this for what it is.
It's a basic comedy road movie about the Jesus on his release from jail. The thing about this character is he isn't that well fleshed out in Lebowski. He's only on screen a few mins. Apart from the arrogance and the sex offender allegations we don't know much.
This is much lighter in tone than the majority of Coen movies and has much better cinematography and casting than you would expect. It's not overly action packed or has any extreme violence. It's quite an easy relaxed watch. Audrey Tatou makes a welcome return to the screen and this is exactly the kind of movie you expect her to be in.
This is quite a chilled out movie with surprisingly gentle and good natured humour. Expect a sequel.
