Starts out great...but

I was waiting to see this, with great hopes of something good. It started out great, funny, wild, then just went downhill after 15 minutes. I could barely make it through to the end. As usual, a big disappointment from mainstream filmmakers.

Jesus versus Karma

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.

As Shock Treatment is to Rocky Horror

Bear with me for a paragraph. Most people don't know that there was a 1981 sequel to "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Brad and Janet returned (portrayed by different actors) in a new story that bore virtually no relation to the original. Fans expected "Shock Treatment" to be "Rocky Horror 2," which it definitely wasn't, and the film quickly vanished into obscurity. However, those of us who were able to overlook the ties to the previous movie were treated to a quirky oddity that presciently spoofed reality television decades before there was such a thing. I wouldn't go so far as to say "The Jesus Rolls" is ahead of its time, but I can't help but draw comparisons to "Shock Treatment." Yes, Jesus Quintana originated in "The Big Lebowski," but if you're expecting more of the same, you're going to hate it. However, if you can just forget The Dude's adventure and accept this movie for the oddball little dramedy that it is, it's enjoyable. Jesus gets out of jail, where he's met by his buddy, Peter (Bobby Cannavale). The duo sets off on a small-time crime spree, soon teaming up with hairdresser Marie (Audrey Tautou), and forming an unusual throuple. Turturro imbues Jesus with a lot of extra dimensions (although frankly, that's something that many fans probably didn't want to see, as there's little mention of his prowess in the bowling lanes). The always-wonderful Cannavale is perfect as his self-centered sidekick. Tautou is charmingly odd as the duo's free-spirited not-girlfriend. And Susan Sarandon deserves an honorable mention for her hilarious and heartbreaking turn as a recently-paroled woman whom the guys briefly encounter. Other reliable actors like Christopher Walken, Tim Blake Nelson, J.B. Smoove, and Jon Hamm all essentially appear in cameos. The film's biggest problems are that it lacks a strong plot and antagonists ( I've never seen the '70s French film that this was adapted from, but I surmise that's where these issues originated). Basically, it's a road trip movie where strange things happen to our protagonists as peripheral characters come and go. Road trip movies usually have something that the characters hope to accomplish when they arrive at their destination, but motive is largely absent here. Instead, it winds up being more akin to a character study. There's also a question of how much time passes. No major spoiler, but someone is injured at the beginning of the film, and they seem to have miraculously healed long before the credits roll. I only mention it because it doesn't seem to align with something that occurs at the film's conclusion. The movie's not perfect, and ain't Lebowski 2, but I was entertained for 77 minutes. Honestly, that's all I can ask of any film.
