Jesus, You Know
Available on MUBI, Prime Video
A film as a confessional. People go to church. People sit alone on a pew, people pray to Jesus, who is everything to them: Father and friend, saviour and rescuer, guide and wailing-wall, talker, silent one, loving one. Ulrich Seidl's latest film, Jesus, you know fragmentally portrays the strictly formal and puritanical lives of six believers, who speak very personally with Jesus. They repent, they pray, they thank him and sing his praises, they pour out their woes to him. They regret, they ask questions and expect answers.
