    Not since "Under The Volcano" has a movie captured a literary piece on film to this mystical degree. I hope this director takes on the book "Motherless Brooklyn" next.

    Highly entertaining and genuinely funny, until the flash-bang sugary ending that eradicates everything before it.

    It's great, despite what any critics with a foot up their ass may have to say.

    It's often a downer, with a sweet but largely passive protagonist.

    Jesus' Son surprises me with moments of wry humor, poignancy, sorrow and wildness. It has a sequence as funny as any I've seen this year.

    An intermittently compelling and occasionally hilarious road movie.
