Da Sweet Blood of Jesus Reviews

  • Jun 09, 2020

    While obviously flawed, after seeing the abysmal audience score, I was expecting one of the worst films I'd ever seen. Instead I got an effective vampire flick with boosts of adrenaline, quirky humor, and an original allegorical perspective, shaping itself as just as much an addiction drama as it is monster movie horror, and spiritual existential reawakening. The movie's pretty bleak, explicit, and depressing as well as overlong, I found it original and enertainingly subversive. Just know it's not for everyone and it isn't anything amazing. 7.75/10.

    La variation de Spike Lee par rapport au film de vampires n'est pas dénuée d'intérêt tant elle regorge de tout ce qui fait de l'oeuvre du newyorkais. Les expérimentations visuelles presque hors de propos sont présentes, les longues plages de dialogue et de silence aussi, comme quelques uns de ses acteurs fétiches (Rami Malek & Thomas Jefferson Byrd sont évidemment présents, le premier étant excellent dans un rôle en total contre emploi). Cependant, Da Sweet Blood of Jesus est aussi une oeuvre excessive, à l'image de Bamboozled, mais sans le côté contestataire et quasiment méchant de l'auteur. Ici, Da Sweet Blood of Jesus est juste un conte sur l'addiction, efficace la plupart du temps mais qui lorsqu'elle se plante en devient presque un pensum.

    There's enough there to make it watchable, if you generally enjoy Lee's work. It's probably twenty five minutes too long. Reminds me of the style from Kubrick's Barry Lyndon - a long character epic of a social misfit.

    Interesting at the very least. Not as bad as people here say it is.

    An attempt at a disturbing vampire movie but ends up coming off weirdly racist and needing five hundred less sex scenes

    Top notch film. I have watched this 5 times and every time I discover something new. This is an excellent film that one either gets or one doesn't and I get it. The British actress is absolutely brilliant in it. Love the London accent. Brilliant.

    This movie was too fuckin weird in the right way for me not to like it. The thing that bothered me about it most was the music. It took something horrifying and gave it a sense pleasantness and or romance which was fucked up in a different way entirely but not in a way I fully appreciated so I have real mixed feelings about this movie but I didn't hate it.
