Sarah Silverman: Jesus Is Magic
(2005, Dir. Liam Lynch)
The three components of this flick:
1. Silverman’s act: Kinda funny, if squirm-inducing and fairly one-note. “Aren’t I adorable?”, followed by “insert inappropriate observation here”. Bound to get some viewers tied up in knots about whether she is or isn’t racist as all git-out.
2. The non-concert footage: Awful. Didn’t work a bit, and breaks the rhythm of the film completely.
3. Lynch’s direction: Amateur.
