  • Jason's rating of the film The Sin of Jesus

    All great artists are, of course, amateurs. The cinema has less room for the amateur because: $$$. So here we have something appropriately amateur, made w/ heart instead of experience, instead of expertise. This is basically underground cinema, in the strict sense, but it is a classical literary tale told po–faced. Whether of not it was intended as a calling card, it commands reverence. Sweet, sweet solemn stuff.
