Critic Reviews for Jesus
Guzzoni's movie is an unsparing portrait of aimlessness told mostly in the queasiest shades ...
One feels the filmmaker trying hard to work out the inner struggles of his sad but largely unsympathetic characters. But his movie is as miserable and ultimately confounding as it is earnest.
Investigates its moral quandaries with a rigor this kind of bad-seed street-teen movie usually can't manage.
Jesus' sex scenes are pretty explicit but this actually serves a purpose, as the studiedly careless way in which Guzzoni has choreographed and shot them helps suggest something about the character's more than casual attitude towards intimacy.
Superbly lensed in a jittery chiaroscuro by Uruguayan cinematographer Barbara Alvarez, "Jesús" investigates the darkest side of adolescence, raising a number of moral questions without providing easy answers.
