the must-see film of the holiday season

November 13, 2007 Leave a comment Go to comments

Oh Santa has come early! I forgot that Morgan Spurlock (Super Size Me / 30 Days) has been working on a project called “What Would Jesus Buy“. I just saw the trailer and I can’t wait. Of course, I’ll have to wait and see it on DVD because here in the land of Wal?Mart and McDs, there isn’t a theater in town that will take a chance on it. Maybe on campus. . .

Why does this film thrill me so?

1. I love Spurlock’s style and humor and attitude.  (note the use of the Disney font). This will be a fun film.

2. I just finished reading a great article from Sojourners about Rev. Billy and the Church of Stop Shopping (free registration required to read)

3. Super Size Me sparked significant change in how America views fast food (why do you think McD’s started servinng “Go Active” meals?), if this film could make people rethink how they spend. . .

Here’s the trailer.
