Masterful Efforts, Brilliant Parable
Unlike most flash with a religious allegory or theme, this one is a serious one that forces you to think. Mr. Lam's intent is successful in this case.
This is actually a hardcore piece of work that exemplifies what Flash is capable of. The use of tweens and lip sync are fluid, the cartoon style throws you in, and the do-it-yourself voice-overs, complete with a crowd (unheard of in most Flash!), helps to immerse the audience. As Krinkels said, however, the theme is difficult to decipher; it requires audience interpretation. Whether this was deliberate and part of Mr. Lam's motif or simply a flaw in the narrative is anyone's guess.
"I Love Jesse" is not just a parable but a sharp satire of modern day, extending well beyond the religious arena for which it is designed and inserting itself into other facets of everyday life and of human behavior. Thank goodness Jon took time to rethink the concept and pump reckless hours into it. Shout out and get this movie known to all the crazies populating this site!
