Going Places

The Jesus Returns: First look at John Turturro's Big Lebowski spin-off Going Places

Until it goes click

The Big Lebowski overflowed with memorable characters, from The Dude, Walter, and Donny to known-pornographer Jackie Treehorn and The Dude's awkward landlord. The best of the side characters, though, was John Turturro's Jesus Quintana, an arrogant pederast who makes a major impression in under 5 minutes of screen time.

Well, if you haven't heard, the Jesus has his own spin-off movie coming out called Going Places. The first image of the Jesus in action is now online.

Below is an older Jesus you probably wouldn't want to f**k with. (Also, eight year olds, dude.)

Well, that's certainly an older Quintana bowling... and possibly pelvic thrusting. Jesus...

First things first, the Coen brothers are NOT involved with Going Places, but they did give Turturro permission to use the character. Originally titled 100 Minutes with Jesus, Turturro is the film's writer, director, and star. The movie is a remake of a 1974 French sex-comedy by Bertrand Blier called Les Valseuses. The original film starred Miou-Miou, Gerard Depardieu, and Patrick Dewaere as a trio of traveling sex hooligans. The original film's English title was also Going Places, though the literal translation is a slang term for testicles (so basically The Balls or The Nards).

The trio of misfits in the new film are Turturro, Bobby Cannavale, and Audrey Tautou. Somehow the three amigos start a beef with a gun-wielding hair dresser. Hilarity ensues. Going Places also stars Susan Sarandon, Sonia Braga, and Nicolas Riera. Going Places started production in August in New York City. I know that they filmed in Ditmas Park (around my neighborhood) as well as in Manhattan in or around Grand Central Station.

How do you feel about a Coens-less Jesus movie? Is this the Family Matters to The Big Lebowski's Perfect Strangers? A Jesus movie that's a remake of a French sex-comedy, no less. On that note, how do you feel about a sex-comedy with a pederast?

What's a pederast, Walter?
