Heady Entertainment: Holy Smokes! “The Jesus Rolls” Is a 420-Friendly Blessing

Welcome back to “Heady Entertainment,” MERRY JANE’s weekly guide to just-released movies, books, and music — all fresh, dank, and THC-friendly. In specific, we choose our picks based on how they can enhance your combined consumption of cannabis and entertainment.

Sneaking into theaters (like tokes between mouthfuls of popcorn), The Invisible Man is out to haunt Elisabeth Moss to horrifying heights, The Jesus Rolls is a smoking spin-off flick for John Turturro’s character from The Big Lebowski, and Greed re-teams director Michael Winterbottom with UK funnyman Steve Coogan for a savage takedown of billionaire insanity.

Streaming-wise, RuPaul’s Drag Race is back to spread inspiration and ecstasy, the sci-fi skull-jolter Altered Carbon gets a fresh season, and Jason Segal headlines the tricky anthology Dispatches From Elsewhere.

Among our vintage cult flick picks is Masked and Anonymous, a wicked trip from Borat director Larry Charles starring Bob Dylan; the George C. Scott talking sea mammal adventure Day of the Dolphin; the ’80s splatter horror Deadline; and Evil Ed, a mid-’90s tribute to ’80s splatter horror.

New music made for use with marijuana includes drops from Lil Baby, Caribou, and Wasted Shirt — a hyper-dope new collaboration between Ty Segall and Brian Chippendale of Lightning Bolt.

So let’s get straight — but not “straight” — to this week’s fresh-rolled recommendations.
