Jesus' Son: The Movie

By Steve Weddle

I'm away today, but thought I'd leave you with this.

There's a Jesus' Son movie? With Billy Crudup and Jack Black and Samanta Morton and Holly Hunter and Denis Leary? Good grief. I had no idea.

Haven't seen it, and I'm not sure I want to. I'll just read it over and over and listen to others read it. Here's a New Yorker podcast reading of "Work."

Good gracious, I do love that book.

And here's Tobias Wolff reading "Emergency," also from Jesus' Son.

I actually liked that movie but it's been too long since I saw it to say much about it. And I haven't read the book, though have always meant to since.

Same here. I remember liking the movie. It was appropriately bleak and very well-acted. Directed by the same woman, Alison Maclean, who did an odd psychological thriller in New Zealand before that called CRUSH.

Thanks, Scott. I'll have to see if I can find that one.
