Movie Info

AMERICAN JESUS is a vivid mosaic of personalities and conflicting points of view that emerges as a portrait of an America yearning for solace and meaning in the modern world. An exploration of Christianity in every faction of American life, from the bread line to the yoga studio, from the humble churches of snake handlers to the mega churches of the ex-urbs. Christian cowboys, bikers and musicians, comedians, surfers and cage-fighters, they are all doing it for Christ. (C) Glass Eye Pix

Critic Reviews for American Jesus

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (4)

The reduction of Christianity into just another political group feels like a dilution, a conversion of wine into water.

Distinguished by stirring photography, empathetic interviewing, and a shrewd sense of who to let talk and who to cut off.

The film becomes a hodgepodge that will enlighten few viewers.

It's not clear what Aram Garriga thinks he is accomplishing in his simplistic "American Jesus," but he's not accomplishing much.

...if [Garriga's] portrait of American Christianity is not representative, it certainly is interesting, taking Americans as well as foreigners to many places they have probably not been before.

A less preachy Religulous, but just as outrageously entertaining.
