So after arriving in Toronto on the red eye from Los Angeles, I thought that the best way for me to begin the festival was to see something light and short. The movie that kicked off the 2005 Toronto Film Festival for me was SARAH SILVERMAN: JESUS IS MAGIC. I don’t think this will ever be released in the movie theaters, but would something that would find it’s way to HBO at some point in the near future.

Is it good? Well, that can be answered with another question… Are you a fan of Sarah Silverman? If the answer is yes, then you will enjoy the movie, but if not, then it probably not be your cup of tea. If you have never heard of Sarah Silverman, check this out and you will get a good idea of what she is all about.

JESUS IS MAGIC lasts a brief 75 minutes and is almost completely comprised of Sarah’s stand up routine. She is irreverent and controversial, but she consistently brings the funny. I am a fan and it was a great way to start the festival.
