Da Sweet Blood of Jesus (2015)
Critic Consensus: Da Sweet Blood of Jesus has no shortage of style, but it isn't enough to make this horror-tinged Spike Lee joint one of his best -- or worth recommending.

Critic Reviews for Da Sweet Blood of Jesus
"Da Sweet Blood of Jesus" is a bold but wildly uneven, bloody mess of a film, sunk in large part by the subpar performances by nearly every major character in nearly every major role.
Never once does the film feel sharp on black identity (as did Bill Gunn's original), and the terror is theoretical only.
The film is a hypnotically nightmarish mood piece more than anything else; it makes sense and yet doesn't make sense, in the way that dreams do and don't make sense.
Unrepentant, uneven and unique, "Da Sweet Blood of Jesus" proves that Lee can still make a film worthy of the arguments it will most certainly start.
Da Sweet Blood of Jesus is a mess, but it's the kind of mess only one of our greatest filmmakers could make.
