Critic Reviews for Screen Door Jesus
...it's refreshing to see a film that not only doesn't demonize, but actually distinguishes between different strains of old-time Southern religion.
Screen Door Jesus demonstrates why [Robert] Altman is a genius and [director Kirk] Davis is a novice.
Despite the conflicting statements on faith and religion, revenge and forgiveness, and sex and love, the divergent arguments are ultimately part of the ramshackle grace and peculiar charm of this modest, frequently-satisfying film.
[Its] gutsy, madly ambiguous unleashing of a mixed bag of religious reactions attests to a genuine sense of regionalism.
Audience Reviews for Screen Door Jesus
It's one of those movies where you have to pick the person you watch it with very carefully. It is very easy for this one to piss people off. The only real thing I have against it is the fact that I don't think the movie actually knows where it stands on religion. It takes the extreames and shows all of their points of view. The hypocrat is very much alive in this movie. I think it should have possibly picked a side, and stuck with it. It's like they wanted to be so down the middle in the end the kind of missed the point. They should have instead just made people think. The acting is about as good as you would expect from the cheesy premis, but if you can look past that you actually have a pretty decent movie. It's more about how outragous people are with religion that they can't even think for themselves.
Good movie.I guess there was suppose to be some kinda religious meaning behind it but I didnt get it cause Im not religious
Winner of the Golden Starfish fiction competition at the Hamptons fest, pic's gutsy, madly ambiguous unleashing of a mixed bag of religious reactions attests to a genuine sense of regionalism.
