Jesus Henry Christ
Based on Dennis Lee’s award-winning 2003 short by the same name, the feature length “Jesus Henry Christ” premiered at the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival to much public interest, due to its famous executive producer, Julia Roberts. The Tribeca summary wrote that, “Lee gives all characters their fair share of snappy dialogue and off-the-wall moments of hilarity, spiking the film with playful charm and visual flair. Collette and Sheen effortlessly flex their comedic muscles with bright newcomers Spevack and Weinstein in this whimsical tale”. However, the film received mixed reviews and had trouble finding a distributor for a theatrical release. It received a limited theatrical US release in April 2012, two years after completion. The New York Times wrote in its review, “As Jesus Henry Christ jumps from topic to topic, never settling on a theme, your instinct is to give it the benefit of the doubt and read into it whatever meaning you choose. That’s not an easy task, given that its flightiness is contradicted by a formal pictorial style that suggests that there is a meaning. Whatever it intends, Jesus Henry Christ is not especially funny. There are witticisms galore in both the thematically recurrent imagery and the dialogue, but very few qualify as jokes, and any laughter is hard to come by. Willfully zany would be a more apt description.”
