'Jesus Is King' Film Review: Kanye West Documentary

jesus is king movie

The film is essentially an invitation to a Sunday Service through the convenience of your local cinema. This film carries some of the heavenly perfume that still lingers on our churches and hearts from the stench of chattel slavery. However, the first 10 minutes of the film was so loud, I wondered if I needed to leave to purchase ear plugs. I'm an evangelist, so my music, my films, every conversation, every room I go in, we're here to save souls, save you from. This film and the audio engineering certainly captured that reality with the Sunday Service choir.

Art films are a unique genre of movie that are aimed at a niche and tend to be a lot more abstract. Occasionally blanket incomprehension and ignorance results in blanket denial. The ambiguity that surrounded the Sunday Services in the beginning most likely catalyzed mistrust. This is certainly one of those. An audience doesn't need to see Kanye West's meter long chest hairs. They arrived at about 7:20, just in time to catch the closing scenes and the credits.

I don't know why they shot in this art installation. Each new set-up is remarkable in its own way, even if West and his team only make use of a small portion of what the Crater has to offer. The good news is that the performance by the Sunday Service Choir is excellent. However, in recent weeks Kanye has become much more vocal about his experience with Jesus. Some say Kanye is raising up an ecumenical anti-Christ worship movement, while others dismiss it as a ploy to hoodwink gullible Christians financially. I love listening to things at full crank.

At one point I considered how helpful lyrics on the screen would be for the viewers, but Kanye chose for the only text to be the text that matters most: scripture. I'm not here for your entertainment. No one ever contradicts the facts through authentic evidence because there is none. They bob and clap in syncopated rhythm while singing the word Joy! It touched something so deep within me that I could hardly breathe. Jesus Is King is part of this reinvention crusade, but its austerity may not inspire much fervor.

The frame dilates and expands in circular and oval stencils around the footage on-screen. The film made me think of funky, stucco mid-century churches, and the way they can seem like campy architectural artifacts today. This is one of at least four other really powerful takeaways for me beyond the aforementioned points. The rapper has always been Christian. The whole world, each and every library, museum and religious archive. Knight, of course, tries his hardest to counter that feeling however he can, his long takes irising in and out on the faces in a way that frames them like the Roden Crater frames the stars above. That evidence is compelling and conclusive however.

We overcome by the Blood of the Lamb and the Word of our testimony. A lot of this video is shot with bad camera angles and very little movement of the camera. Another couple who was joining us, assumed that there were previews. My mother was a Gospel choir director and it was amazing how much vocal power she extracted out of just a small group of singers. In the Lowe interview, West said that his just came from how he feels.
