MOVIE: Jesus’s Son

GUEST: Tuffgirly

NUTSHELL: A guy, a girl, drugs, the seventies. But it’s GOOD. Based on a brilliant collection of short stories.

GOOD THINGS: Jack Black, the acting is phenomenal, and did I mention Jack Black? I really liked the parkas. Plus now I’m in love with Billy Crudup.

BAD THINGS: C’mon, like I really want to watch someone shoot up.

FEATURES: Joaquin Phoenix’s brother Billy, Samantha Morton (no matter how much they paid me, they could not get me to dance like she did) Dennis Leary, Dennis Hopper, Holly Hunter. How could this movie not get an award? Did I mention Jack Black?

UNCOMFORTABLE MOMENTS: The shooting up thing, and also some pretty heavy-handed religious imagery. We get it, we get it.

NOTABLE: Even though I am the number one hater of shooting up, I loved this movie more than I love my hot rollers. Need I say more? And the soundtrack.

BEST PART: Definitely the knife in the head thing.

BEST LINE: The travelling salesman had fed me pills that made the linings of my veins feel scraped out. My jaw ached. I knew every raindrop by its name. I sensed everything before it happened. I knew a certain Oldsmobile would stop for me even before it slowed, and by the sweet voices of the family inside it I knew we’d have an accident in the storm.

CROWNS: 6 out of 5
