‘The Jesus,’ ‘The Godfather’ and 200 movies

The Messiah isn’t coming to the Jerusalem Film Festival this year, but “the Jesus” is definitely on his way. John Turturro, whose iconic performance as “the Jesus” in the Coen brothers’ The Big Lebowski is one of the reasons the movie became a cult hit, will be a guest at the 32nd Jerusalem Film Festival, which opens on July 9 and runs through July 19 at the Jerusalem Cinematheque. Turturro is one of the stars of Mia Madre by Nanni Moretti, the opening-night film, which will be screened at the Sultan’s Pool Amphitheater. Turturro will also give a master class that is open to the public.
