With Black Friday upon us...
What Would Jesus Buy? follows Reverend Billy and the Church of Stop Shopping Gospel Choir as they go on a cross-country mission to save Christmas from the Shopocalypse: the end of mankind from consumerism, over-consumption and the fires of eternal debt! (source)
The film is a comedic-guerrilla-satire-umentary (I'm pretty sure I just made that up). Though a bit gimmicky and sure to be dismissed by many evangelicals for being sacrilegious, the film should spark humorous and healthy conversations about consumerism, credit, and the widespread superficiality of the retail Christmas. Perhaps worth considering before you brave the crowds on Friday, or purchase those new rims in the spirit of Christmas (watch the trailer and you'll get that joke)
