Jesus' Son

I have never seen this film because I imagine the theme song is Rick Springfield's Jessie's Girl but with different words.

I wish that I knew Jesus' Son.
I cannot find me a sonny like that.

I like that 'Rock me Sexy Jesus' song more.

No, sorry. Wrong movie. My bad.

-James Bond: A little. But I won't consider myself to be in trouble until I start weeping blood.

vs.



______________

The Big Lebowski

9/10 toes

My first viewing - I am going to quit my job, drink white russians and reassess my life.

______________

Kids

From a narrative and directing standpoint this film rivals the best of documentary filmmaking.  Except, its not a documentary.  Its a disgusting cautionary tale of trash culture.  Its an urban nightmare influenced by the AIDS epidemic.  How in the hell did Larry Clark pull this off?  How in the hell is he not in prison now?  This is a brilliant and sick film.

****out of *****

p.s. the first time I saw this few knew of Chloe Sevigny - but she is at the core of this film and carries most of its emotional weight

______________

Coen's go on to make better and classic films.  Larry Clark fades into pedophiliac obscurity.

There is only one Kids and it beats The Big Lebowski.

Period.

8/10 > 9/10? The Coens go on to make better and classic films after Lebowski? Hmm...


Strangely, I don't mind so much.

Strangely, I don't either. It's not a movie I expect others to like as much as I do.

You're so incredibly wrong (mostly cause Kids is really mediocre filmmaking), but this is a highly probably resurrection.
