The Jesus Rolls

John Turturro plays Jesus Quintana in 'Going Places,' a film about a trio of misfits whose irreverent, sexually charged dynamic evolves into a surprising love story as their spontaneous and flippant attitude towards the past or future backfires time and again, even as they inadvertently perform good deeds. When they make enemies with a gun-toting hairdresser, their journey becomes one of constant escape from the law, from society and from the hairdresser, all while the bonds of their outsider family strengthen.

In this film a lot of positive. A wonderful novel by Bertrand Blier "going places" was more accurate adaptation. Notice that tape Blier, filmed by his the novel was far enough from the literary source.

And in the film, wonderful casting. Judge for yourself — no major episode not without superstars. Christopher Walken in the role of warden, Susan Sarandon plays emerged from jail lady, Sonia Braga plays the role of mother. And this is only the beginning. A trio of main characters is also very interesting. Bobby cannavale, Audrey Tautou and John Turturro. This film is just not can not raise the attention of the viewer.

But still need to consider the context of hooliganism and excessive frankness. It sounded extraordinary.

And here to start with the original names. It is not too good. In fact, no more kitsch and outrageous, call than a relationship with the contents of the tape.

Fail and leading actors. And if Audrey Tautou is quite interesting in the role of frivolous ladies, which is not can be fully determined by the value of orgasm in their system of life values, then the other two actors are not too correspond to their roles. First of all, it for John Turturro. They played characters all its brightness, not burn sparks. If a minor character is picked up and brought the front of the stage. The unconditional statement with the lack of content. No internal intrigue and the hero Cannavale.

Specified vapidity causes the failure of many important scenes. The camera, the actors say, sounded vivid dialogue, absurd moments — and all no expression accents, hints of tones. On the same breath. Here you a casual, graceful absurdity is appears commonplace vulgarity.

The same case when there is nowhere to hide. No Blier, nor the priests, nor Sarandon — nobody can help. It just call — a bad picture. Failure

Jesus Quintana comes from prison trying to steal a vintage car from a glamorous hairdresser. Barber appreciated the breadth of the nature of the veteran — exhibitionist, and began frantically to shoot. One of the bullets goes straight to the delicate sweet ass Pete (friend Quintana). Friends flee, in revenge, taking the car of the shrew kwatera, and his girlfriend, the sultry girl, suffering (and maybe the enjoyer) anorgasmia. The beginning of this masterpiece is nothing you don't like? Yes — Yes! I too, was taken aback from such impudence! Twenty years of complaints moaning, tales of the Herculean efforts on writing the script, advice from the Cohens, the expectations of fans, and on the way out... the remake of "going places" by Bertrand Blier!

It seems to me that Turturro so identifies himself and his character that took not the best habits. Some believe that Quintana was a pedophile. This error. Not to be confused with dirty pedophiles and a noble, carrying the beauty of the world (as they understand it), the exhibitionists. This movie is a session of the shameless exhibitionism. "Going places" was a regurgitation of the events of 1968, a slap in the face of public taste, a Manifesto of a new nihilism, a slap in friable face of bourgeois morality. Three young men, beautiful in his shamelessness, violate all possible taboo, and are careless (as opposed to an eternally busy man) the life commitment.

In this film, 62 — year-old Turturro portrays 26 — summer of the hero, played in an authentic film with Gerard Depardieu. Wrinkled, dry, like a date, retired depicts a lush, fat-youth. "With Quintana trifled with!" It's why else? Because he can't stand, to crumble from old age? This film, Turturro has ruined the image of dangerous, explosive, unpredictable character of the "the Big Lebowski". Walter Sobchak to be a bit off this Kintana both ear the nose into the bargain.

And Pierrot? Sad hypochondriac with the face of Aramis. Refined handsome of Davaar, with his languid, with a languishing look. The version Turturro this role is played by Cannavale — a big Italian guy with a bull neck, and nose the shape of the Shoe. Cannavale are good in the roles of thugs, cut with an ax FBI agents, producers, punk — groups, but the role of a character is thin, vulnerable, he was clearly not in size. It is not understand — what you have to play, and so passes from the strained gaiety to ostentatious, locking and sadness. In he like orphan, first came to the Panhandle in the subway. It seems to be feeling I want to eat. So confused Cannavale I haven't seen. Migrant Audrey Tautou no never like cool, mysterious Mew — Miu. The feeling is that she accidentally wandered on the set, and decided to wriggle in front of the camera, while the real grimiruetsya actress.

What does this movie have to do with film the Cohens? Apparently, the calculation was is the release of the original film, it took almost 50 years, so the audience swallow the pill. Those who saw this film, have long dim nothing will understand. And those not seen, admire the breadth of design, and the skill of the Director. How many sleepless nights I spent miserable Turturro, writing original screenplay for this film? Poor thing! He even thin, and the skin had turned brown. Bronzite or tanning, in jail! What a pain!

It's time to rebuild Turturro on the shooting continue. The next part should be called "the Cathedral of the Parisian mother Kitano" and will be a free interpretation of the novel Hugo. Jesus will make plastic, will gain hump, and will be fun to chase balls for a bowling a ruined Cathedral.

Jesus is risen! Intrusive, unpleasant the villain from the world of bowling, immortalized by John Turturro in"the Big Lebowski" returns to screens. Yeah, that a couple of scenes in the creation of the Kohanim him clearly not enough, so I had Turturro collect money under this character. The result was a road movie, so bizarre, how crazy it is the main character. In a sense, the existence of "longer" has a prototype in the face of "the Big Lebowski" a disservice: although that the creation Turturro filmed with the blessing of the Coen brothers, this is definitely not a sequel not spin-off — in this uneven work, everything induces thoughts about some kind of fan-made crafts.

So Jesus-Jesus leaves the correctional facility. Hardly Jesus left the hospitable walls of the prison, he's Dating his friend Petey, after which they stolen car. The owner of the car — the local Barber and it is not appreciated the act of the couple, which starts shooting at the heroes. We have Jesus and Petey to steal and French friend Barber name Marie, after which the "longer" moves in the direction of the traditional road movie.

The thing what, how is no paradoxically, the film is about Jesus Quintana not disclose of this character. Turturro has played too much caricature: each scene is overflowing this character that embodies masculinity and other stereotypes of "tough guys". It is clear that all — no more than the ridicule and banter, however, if "Lebowski" such was appropriate (Quintana was like the antagonist in the film, in which the antagonist is not needed) then here Turturro believes in his character as if it has a great personality. With this in mind, the story becomes even more ambiguous: is the rollicking Comedy the viewer is given real existential problems, long-haired men in crisis, close to retirement age.

Such a wild premise would have the meaning, but not "any longer": I really this movie is not serious. The film is clearly trying to imitate the "Lebowski", but Turturro does not wish to exert any cultural influence or just tell the story without the beginning with no end. Generally it is more like the provocation, in quite a different way than ordinary desire to shock the audience. The characters in movie Jesus pass evolution (even the most, on first glance, insignificant), making it is even more confusing.

"Longer" as not amenable to easy categorization: this movie is not afraid to be silly, not afraid to raise serious issues and not even avoids sentimentality, despite the overwhelming scenario the irony. At this in a lot, "longer" feels like the movie, which Turturro shot to amuse your self-esteem as Director as an actor: there's too much important material that is not as follows. From the Coen brothers, Tarantino, guy Richie and other talented filmmakers have the gift to make even the most absurd things cool on the screen. Turturro — is also a talented man, but not him enough of those qualities that made Jesus memorable from the Cohens. Hard for Jesus to become the headliner of his solo film without strong team support in the face of filmmakers and writers: in the end, "longer" is completely empty, except for a bold farce and inept references to "going places" by Bertrand Blier.
