Night Visions: Hitchhiking, Heroin, and Other Tales From Jesus' Son, review by Sarah Hepola, The Austin Chronicle
Jesus' Son, directed by Alison Maclean, stands apart from the recent wave of films about drugs, by focusing on a character's journey rather than the physical sensations and exaltation of being high. Played by Billy Crudup and set in the drug subculture of the 1970's, 'Fuckhead [the protagonist] is a wastoid, but he's also a barfly dripping with self-pity, a remorseless thief, a gushing romantic, a poet, a punk, and a wide-eyed innocent,' writes Sarah Hepola for the Austin Chronicle. Maclean says she likes the protagonist for his understanding and tenderness: 'There's nothing cynical or ironic about him at all ... he just says what he feels in the moment.' -- SVBGo there>>
