A movie that genuinely gives you something you've never seen before.

In that grand tradition of European and Asian rip-offs of hit films and genres (Turkish Star Wars, the Italian “077” spy films), “Jesus Shows You The Way To The Highway” feels like the knock off “Ready Player One” (only much better than that sounds). Two CIA agents enter the virtual world of the Psychobook operating system to battle a virus named Stalin - personified by an Irish-accented figure in a paper Joseph Stalin mask. On entering, the agents too adopt paper-masked avatars (Robert Redford and Richard Pryor) and are filmed in a creepy/crappy stop motion look. But then one of the agents (the fantastic Daniel Tadesse ), on his last mission before running away to run a pizza parlour/kick boxing studio with his Amazonian wife, becomes trapped in the system! Along the way we encounter Batfro (the fascist president of Ethiopia - dressed as the Adam West Batman) and a surf-dude Jesus Christ (undoubtedly a reference to Keanu Reeves’ messianic role in “The Matrix”). Director Miguel Llansó brings us his truly original vision with a great sense of humour and the absurd, visual flair, an eye for interesting and unusual locations and a healthy obsession with archaic technology. Also included is Miguel Llansó’s debut "Crumbs". Again starring Tadesse, this is a slower, more dreamlike meditation on a post-apocalyptic world, where a spaceship hangs lifeless in the sky, pop culture commodities (plastic play swords, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle key rings and Michael Jackson vinyl) are traded as sacred artefacts from a forgotten past, and Santa lives in the ball-return mechanism in a disused bowling alley. At just over an hour long, it doesn’t over stay it’s welcome, and the Ethiopian locations are so striking. Rounded off with extras and short films, Arrow have again introduced me to a new and exciting cinematic voice who I want to see more from. Recommended for lovers of strange and odd films everywhere.
