Movie Title: Confessions Of A Teenage Jesus Jerk

Director: Eric Stoltz

Released: 2017

 

Confessions Of A Teenage Jesus Jerk is a bit of a satire on the Jehovah's Witnesses, although it really could be about any claustral and holier-than-thou faith which takes itself too seriously.

 

The movie centers around Gabe, played by Sasha Feldman, here in his cinematic debut.

 

The several scenes of life inside the organization are quite entertaining. Take the sequence set at an annual convention, in which two teenage members of the church are shown on stage illustrating for the audience a dialogic strategy when confronted with a disinterested householder, in response to various 'conversation-stoppers' they may encounter during their door-to-door ministerial assignments.

 

There are scenes of Gabe engaged in the recruitment work, calling on people's homes, and attending his local meeting hall dressed in his Sunday best.

 

Gabe's father, an elder within the congregation, is none too pleased when he finds out that his son has been caught holding hands with a 'worldly' girl at school. Gabe is placed on the hot seat and undergoes a grilling by a committee of elders. He swears to them that all he did was embrace.

 

Confessions Of A Teenage Jesus Jerk portrays its sympathetic hero caught between two extremes, and if the screenplay is at fault for anything, it's that it limits the choices the protagonist has to one of two options: the family faith or living a life of immorality and hanging out with punks. It's that old Us verses Them, black-and-white mentality, commonly associated with cults or cloistered religious communities.

Christ killing K*kes nursing a butt-hurt that will never go away...

 

That feeling of Jesus' righteous whip on their backs chasing them out of the Temple or being told to their face that they are the sons of Satan.

 

Best thing is to laugh at them.... but make sure you keep out of their reach. Butt hurt Jews are dangerous and could well end up destroying the whole darn world.
