Underrated: Jesus' Son

When? 1999

What's it rated? R

Where's it available? DVD, Streaming on Amazon and iTunes

Late American author Denis Johnson's collection of short stories, Jesus' Son, are adapted into a feature length film by Canadian-born New Zealander director Alison Maclean for the 1999 comedy by the same title. The film stars and is narrated by Billy Crudup as FH, a.k.a. Fuckhead, a heroin- and prescription drugs-using 20-something who occasionally steals things and finds himself in one unfortunate scenario after the other.

FH is introduced to heroin by his future girlfriend Michelle, played by Samantha Morton, who FH meets in one of the film's many memorable scenes, this one set to the immediately infectious Tommy Roe hit "Sweet Pea."
