The reviews are pouring in and they are impressive. Maybe this is the breakthrough Christian movie Joe and I were hoping it would be:
- New York Post: ”This is a rare bird, a sincere movie about Christian faith.”
- San Francisco Chronicle: ”It tackles existential struggles that many of us grapple with–and the film industry virtually ignores–while doing so in an entertaining way.”
- Boston Globe: ”It steadfastly refuses to demonize.
- USA Today: ”Just earnest enough to blend its religious theme with a beer-chugging hero for a surprisingly contemporary look at faith.”
- Slant: ”…the film is very visually accomplished, with handsome compositions, labored-over art direction, and constant employment of the titular hue.”
- Washington Post: ”…gets the atmosphere of intellectual curiosity mixed with know-it-allness just right…It’s a story that needs to be told.”
- New York Times: ”Sincere and literary…”
- Village Voice: ”…a cut above the usual indie-comedy mock shock.”
- Onion A.V. Club: ”It’s a glorious anomaly: a subtle, sophisticated, open-minded, and courageously non-judgmental Christian film even non-believers can enjoy. Hallelujah!”
Blue like Jazz: The Movie was released last Friday in hundreds of venues around the country. It opens in Ohio this Friday and Joe and I will be there with our wives and popcorn. And then we will write our own review. . .
