Watch: Wise Blood 1979 123movies, Full Movie Online – US Army war veteran Hazel Motes may not be a believing Christian, somehow observations like the state of a run-down country church, meeting the ridiculous frauds on the streets and memories inspire him to take up, after initially fierce refusal, the part of a traveling preacher when a cab driver insists he looks like one in his new hat. He starts his own new Church of Truth, without the crucified Jesus, his first disciple being an 18-year old simpleton with a ‘prophetic gift’….
Plot: A Southerner–young, poor, ambitious but uneducated–determines to become something in the world. He decides that the best way to do that is to become a preacher and start up his own church.

Soak up the atmosphere
A hefty percentage of the comments on “Wise Blood” dwell on its relationship to the novel from which it was drawn — pro and con. Brilliant faithful adaptation says one moviegoer. Trashy sacrilege screams another. Those of us who haven’t read the book are stuck with the movie which balances superb atmosphere with strange storytelling. Let’s start on the plus side. John Huston and his crew have caught not only the look but the feel, almost the smell, of a midsize southern town in Summer. The weathered frame houses, the sagging streets, the one-screen cinema, the tired used car lot with its rusty Ford Fairlanes, they form a richly authentic backdrop for the action. That’s where “Wise Blood” gets into trouble. Who is Hazel,played by Brad Dourif, what war did he emerge from, why does he want to be a preacher and most of all, why does he suffer psychotic temper tantrums? You’ll have to figure that out for yourself — along with why a would-be acolyte steals an embalmed monkey for him and why the nymphet daughter of a “blind” evangelist is smitten with him, down to her threadbare stockings. Sure, there are allegorical references galore throughout the film. The phoniness of Gonga, the gorilla (a bruiser in an ape suit) matched against the phoniness of street corner preachers. But in the end, maybe you’ll say to yourself (but never breathe a word to more ephemeral friends)I just wish the darned thing made more sense.

One of Huston’s Best!
This sly, little film captures Ms. O’Connor’s novel with a spirit of empathy. Brad Dourif is “crazy” as Hazel Motes in a different mode than is usual for him (CUCKOO’S NEST, voice of CHUCKY). Daniel Schorr is splendid as his little helper, Enoch Emery and the rest of the cast work wonders. A 9 out of 10. Best performance = Daniel Schorr.

Flannery O’Connor’s short stories would make stunning films (Sam Shepard crossed with Hitchcock). Amy Wright is a true original and Ned Beatty (so often miscast) is pathetic and yet all too familiar and human. One of the best of 1980 (after RAGING BULL and THE ELEPHANT MAN). Try to find this one if you can. Haunting, touching, Gothic Black Comedy!
