Plot

"The Heart is Deceitful Above All Things" is based on JT Leroy's critically acclaimed novel of the same name. The story is about Jeremiah, a child who is pulled from his foster home and thrown into a troubled life on the road with his teenage mother, Sarah. With Sarah, Jeremiah travels through the country roads of the U.S. and learns first hand about the troubles of the world. With an impressive cast including Oscar winner Peter Fonda (Easy Rider, Ulees Gold), Jeremy Renner (S.W.A.T), and Asia Argento (starred opposite Vin Diesel in XXX), The Heart is Deceitful Above All Things will be one of the most anticipated independent film projects of 2004.
 

Comments

High praise for the performances., 22 June 2004 Author: johnnyg83 But the strong performances all around and the great settings really made an impression on me. I thought the editing was exceptionally done. One thing that did bother me was the lighting there was almost a pallor over the film, like it was from the 1970s. Was that the projector or did everyone else notice that? I would recommend this film. I enjoyed the cameos by Peter Fonda, Marilyn Manson and Winona Ryder. The real reason I went to see this is because I've always loved Leroy's short stories and this movie was a somewhat faithful blending of his literary vision and his overall message to his readers. Life is complicated and the choices we make aren't guaranteed to get us anything.
