Now showing in theaters and available for streaming on Peacock, Honk for Jesus. Save Your Soul. is a satirical film that explores the complex nuances of Black megachurch culture. Although this film does not represent every Black megachurch that exists, it does tackle some truths in a loud manner that left people feeling multiple ways ranging from angry to disappointed, to embarrassed or awakened.
Wherever you fall in that range, or if you care at all, I don’t see this film as a simple exposition of the negative things that can happen in church. Conversely, the film serves as a satirical dissertation we never asked for but got anyway.
1.There was an original.
2.Art often imitates life.
3.There was a bigger picture.
4.To whom much is given, much is required.
5.A lot of church folks are mad, and that’s their right.
6.Seats have power.
7.Proximity and relationship to power can be dangerous, too.
