Editorial Reviews

He looks like Jesus Christ. And preaches like St. Francis of Assisi. Some say he's "a kook." Others, "a blessing from God." Barefoot, and clad in a white robe, he's walked through 47 states [and 13 countries] on a 16-year mission that's captured media attention from 20/20, Time and the Wall Street Journal. Yet who is this solitary figure who inspires faith - and attracts controversy? "The Jesus Guy" covers the mystical journey of America's "Barefoot Evangelist." In a nation that worships money, he's penniless. In a culture that idolizes celebrities, he's forsaken his identity. Now, on a spiritual quest even he doesn't fully understand, his faith - and your own - will be tested every step of the way. With the intimacy of single-camera filmmaking, Director Sean Tracey allows us to walk in "The Jesus Guy's" steps as he encounters both skeptics and believers, changing them...for better, for worse, forever.

Young guy, appears to be a little mentally deranged, who treks around the Northeast U. S. in a robe, a la Jesus, and shoeless, even in the winter. He doesn't beg or accept money and goes by the name of "What's Your Name" which reminded me of Abbott and Costello and their Who's on first routine. He has no regular place to sleep or eat and depends upon the generosity of people who are apparently fascinated by his schtick. I got the impression that he craves attention and is a bit of a narcissist, however, not as bad as The Donald. Interesting documentary but this guy reminded me of a destitute TV evangelist and a successful mooch.

I think it is odd that someone would shame him for the media exposure. How wise is he to use the media to spread the message. It's not about him nor did he gain for it. He uses it to bring the love of the Lord into view. I disagree with a small portion of his beliefs. But I agree with his mission and reaching out to the people. I love the fact that he doesn't want donations but he will talk to anyone. Keep up the faith Whats Your Name...

It's a great documentary, a story about a man walking his 'talk' and living his beliefs. There was a disgruntled women featured in the movie. I'm not sure 'why' she was so upset, she rants about 'the Jesus guy' being only a man and that God is working 'through' him but, I mean, that's how God works through anyone. It is never the 'individual' but the Holy Spirit working in the individual to bring about God's will. The bible says we're 'vessels' and 'temples' of the most High. The Jesus Guy is just doing the great commission that Christ called all of his followers to do, which is to preach the Gospel. He happens to do this barefoot and in a white robe, but so what. He accepts no money and lives a kind of nomadic lifestyle but again, so what. That doesn't take away from the fact that in a world that makes money 'an absolute necessity' The Jesus guy is living without it. In a world with so many religions, he's "not" being in that gray zone of total acceptance but taking a firm stand about what and 'who' he believes in. The only bad thing about this film is that there isn't 'more' of it or something like it. God bless 'The Jesus guy' for taking such a prominent & public stance on the 'truth' which is the Gospel of Christ.

John 14:6
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

It's about the most radical and literal interpretation of Christianity that you're likely to find anywhere. It's also about someone who has dared to really live his faith. I grew up in South Jersey, in another seashore resort near Wildwood. And I couldn't help but cringe with embarrassment at hearing the Wildwood cops giving him a hard time. If they could have arrested him for "vagrancy," they would have. (Probably the only reason they didn't was because of the cameras.) And then some monsignor representing the Camden Diocese warned Catholic schools to forbid him from entering, because he hasn't been "officially approved" by the Church.

Well, Carl James Joseph (his real name), isn't Jesus, but he certainly is trying to follow Jesus with all his heart. And if he were Jesus, it would be even worse for New Jersey -- because there's absolutely no doubt that the Wildwood cops and the Camden Diocese would have condemned Jesus Himself just as forcefully. It makes me embarrassed to be from Jersey -- but at least I had the good sense to escape.

I actually see the Jesus Guy around my area and wondered who he was. This documentary was not just informative but inspiring...not that I would do it. I recommend this to give a spiritual uplift.
