Writer/director JJ Lask adapted his darkly comic satire On the Road With Judas from his best-selling 2002 novel of the same name. Set in the early 1990s, the story follows a seemingly conservative New York businessman (Napoleon Dynamite's Aaron Ruell) who moonlights as a cutthroat computer thief. Lask employs an eclectic combination of formal elements in his creation of the film, including fictional narrative, pseudo-documentary, and several additional storytelling modes.

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
Far more infatuated with its own cleverness than audiences are likely to be.
Clever and moderately entertaining, film is a puzzle that will find some supporters as surely as it will sharply divide audiences.
Acknowledging the fact that you're a tedious, self-indulgent storyteller doesn't excuse the fact that you're a tedious, self-indulgent storyteller.
For those who enjoy the intellectualism, imagery and melancholy of works such as The Royal Tenenbaums or Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, this is a film worth checking out.
Lask naver got fomral education but he's certainly movie savvy for his complex and convoluted debut borrows heavily from the recent cycle of postmodern metaphyical meta-narrative films of Michel Gondry, Spike Jonze, Kaufman, and even Marc Forster
