Wise Blood * 1
    #24620085 - 09/11/17 10:19 AM (3 years, 7 months ago)

A little known 1979 film directed by the legendary John Huston, based on the 1952 novel by the classic Southern Gothic writer Flannery O'Connor. I think it would appeal to a lot of people on this website; it is truly at the Erasorhead level of weirdness.

    It stars Brad Dourif (Deadwood, Blue Velvet) as Hazel Motes, a young man returning from war to the deep South. He decides, ironically, to become an evangelist even though he is basically a nihilist, hence The Church of Jesus Christ without Jesus.

    John Huston (the horrible father in China Town) and Ned Beatty also appear. But the best performances, besides Dourif are Harry Dean Stanton as a preacher in black glasses pretending to be blind, and even better his daughter Sabbath played by Amy Wright. One review described her as homely but I think she has that Sissy Spacek in Carrie quality of being pretty and not pretty at the same time.

    I doubt that it ever had a theatrical release, but it has good critical reviews. It was recently released or re-released on DVD. If you google the film or the author I think you might be compelled to send 10 bucks to Amazon and check it out.

It's been a while since I saw it, but I remember liking it.
