Reviews Of American Jesus; Orgasm, Inc.; Hot Girls Wanted; The Final Member; And Do I Sound Gay?

  The first film under review is a 77 minute long documentary from 2010 called American Jesus. Yes, the annoying trend from the 1990s, of naming a product…

(1)

  In the past when I have received invitations to review books or films of up and coming artists, I have had to make choices to ignore or reply, and usually the choice is easy, as almost all solicitations are for palpably bad books and films. The very emails, attached submissions, or film trailers, are so laughably bad I should not feel remorse, although I sometimes do, even though, because of these submissions, I have likely read more poetry and original poetry…

  The first of the five films I watched was a 2013, 51 minute long, film that had no listed director and seemed to be little more than a goof, taped at a festival for which it…
