Movie Info

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. Leo Fitzpatrick, Kevin Corrigan and Eddie Kaye Thomas co-star. P.S. 260, the production shingle founded by Lask, oversaw production of the project.

  • 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.

    Feb 3, 2007 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • 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
