Editorial Reviews

Gyro, Jerome, Hope, and Jay are all the typical fundamentalist christian characters you see in most christian films. Both Hilarity and Hypocrisy ensue as we follow these characters when they are all thrust into real life situations where not just their lives are at stake, but their faith, preconceptions, and perspectives as well. Throw in some Tarantino loving film making, and just a hint of Kevin Smith-esque writing, and you get Jesus Fish.

Format: DVD
"Jesus Fish" is an ambitious film in many ways. It is completely non-linear, which explains why one other viewer complains about Jesus's entering a hospital room with a gun. It's not Jesus. It's an actor playing Jesus. (I'm not being facetious here. The character in the film is not supposed to be Jesus. He's supposed to be a guy who looks like the stereotypical Jesus and thus plays the role, but he enters the hospital room as the actor, not as Jesus. If that explanation is confusing, I'll try again: There is a real-life actor whose role in the film is a man who plays the role of Jesus in a play.)

The DVD box advertises this film as having touches of Kevin Smith or Quentin Tarantino, cites a quotation calling the movie "profane," and implies that the film skewers the hypocrisy of fundamental Christians (or, as the box writes it, "christians"). While I see the basis for those comments, I disagree with most of them.

Because the plot is so non-linear, describing it is difficult. It centers around a church prayer group, an Easter play, and the various predicaments that the devoutly pious characters get into. According to both the director commentary and one of the extras on the DVD, the film was meant to expose and satirize the too-easy Christianity of people the author met when he moved to Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, and to speculate about what would happen to these values if the characters were put into difficult situations. These difficult situations are what give the Tarantino comparisons, though the level of violence in "Jesus Fish" is far, far less than that in any Tarantino film. As one might expect, holding onto the values of Christianity proves difficult.

Super-low budget? Yes. Do I wish it had been edited tighter? Yes, again. Could I nitpick the fact that a movie made for pocket change doesn't have the gloss of a multi-million dollar "industry" turd? Sure I could.

But if you're open to truly independent efforts that pull off something original, this one deserves a look-see. I saw it at the Bare-Bones Film Festival in Muskogee, Oklahoma a few years ago (a low-budget film I had written was there), and I kept thinking about the movie afterward. I finally tracked down the writer/director and pestered him into sending me a copy.

I'm thrilled to see that it's finally available here on Amazon. Another reviewer complained that he'd expected it to be a "Christian movie" and was therefore unhappy. Okay, you've all been warned. Don't buy a movie you know nothing about even if Jesus is in the title. The film is a clever comment on "extreme" believers without being vicious. My vague recollection is that director Titus Jackson, speaking before the Bare Bones screening, termed himself a Christian. (I may be wrong, but that's my recollection.)

The point is, there's some real funny, real quirky stuff to be found in this film. Give her a try. (It looks like the shipping will cost you more than the film.)

Jesus Fish the Movie, my review for the movie from my web site and as posted at Hollywood Jesus:

In the sport of wrestling, the real sport, not the fake male soap opera we see on cable access, there is the wrestler they call the fish. A fish is usually a push over who don’t do much more than lay on his back and flop around like a fish out of water. The bottom line, it isn’t a pretty sight and that fish isn’t given much respect. Then there is the symbol of the fish that used in the early first century that gave indication in a troubled world that one was a Christian. This was a secret sign as being a Christian in those days could easily have led to persecution and ultimately, death. That fish had a lot of respect as it represented a concept of love, dedication, service, compassion and much more. That fish represented rebellion against the norm as it was a counter movement to religion that sought to influence Rome and more about the willingness to follow the teachings and lifestyle of Jesus.

Unfortunately, the fish of early Christianity has become more like the wrestling fish. We still see that fish made in silver, gold, and platinum designs to place on necklaces, signs, magnets on cars and even expensive chocolate candies. We even see what I call the Christian fish wars. You have likely seen those wars, a plain fish on a car or bumper sticker, one with the Greek letters IXOYE in the center, or a fish with Darwin written inside the body of the fish, maybe even a fish with Darwin eating another plain fish, and there is the plain fish eating the Darwin fish, and before long we could even see a plain fish being eaten by a Darwin Fish, that is also being eaten by another plain fish.

We expected a Christian movie. It started out like a low budget church film, which it is low budget. Then it began to take a fast downhill slide. A girl gets a dying man to say the sinner's prayer, then jesus comes into the hospital room with a shotgun and cussing to make a sailor blush. Then in a few minutes there is a sex scene. We stopped watching after this. It had only been on about 10 minutes. It is touted as award winning. I am sure that the athiest and anti-christians gave it a two thumbs up.
