Jesus Shows You the Way to the Highway
Juicy Joints • Sci-Fi, Adventure, Comedy
What do you get when you cross Afro-futurism, Cold War paranoia, the dystopian world of Philip K. Dick and 60s exploitation cinema, along with a hefty dose of Lynchian surrealism? The answer: 'Jesus Shows You the Way to the Highway', the second feature by Miguel Llanso ('Crumbs') and one of the most striking and original films you'll see all year. The year is 2035, and Special Agent Gagano (Daniel Tadesse, 'Crumbs') dreams of leaving the CIA to open a business with his wife Malin (Gerda-Annette Allikas). Before he can hand in his resignation, however, a strange cyber virus attacks Psychobook, the CIA's operating system, forcing Gagano to enter cyberspace via virtual reality to combat the threat. Before long, however, the virus starts to reach out into the real world, destabilising the fragile socio-political order for its own ends, and Gagano, trapped in the VR world, must find a way out before it's too late. Featuring encounters with an Irish-accented Joseph Stalin, a kung-fu-fighting Batman, and Jesus Christ himself, to name but a few, 'Jesus Shows You the Way to the Highway' is absurd, audacious and like nothing you've ever experienced before.
