    Inventive and bold, Jesus, You Know will especially resonate with people, like this critic, whose strict Catholic upbringing (some might call it brainwashing) inalterably shaped their lives.

    Tells the truth where it counts most: in its unblinking exploration of one of the most private of human experiences.

    Whatever blend of fact and fiction is really at work in this latest offering from ''Dog Days" director Ulrich Seidl -- known, by the way, for playing fast and loose with the documentary format -- the irony-laced ''Jesus, You Know" does persuade viewers to sit up and take notice of its inspired conceit.

    Visually glorious and sometimes moving, but comes coated with a thick hoarfrost of irony.
