Da Sweet Blood of Jesus
is a sexy, hypnotic, dream-like re-telling of the
cult classic Ganja and Hess. Layered with a banging
sound track, Spike Lee offers a glimpse into the
lonely world of Dr. Green. An eccentric art
collector, Dr. Green finds himself catapulted into a
blood addicted existence. And in an act of supreme
selfishness, brings Ganja with him. But that's okay,
she's not exactly the most caring person in the
world. This film has that Spike Lee vibe from years
past. From the opening scene, I was snatched back in
time, I'm talking almost thirty years ago when we
couldn't wait for the next Spike Lee joint to drop. I
miss those days. Da Sweet Blood of Jesus is a good
film. Artsy to say the least, but it works with the
topic at hand. Oh, it even has Lee's signature
still-motion camera pan; or what ever he calls it.
Just plain cool. I recommend this one, family.
