  Dear Jesse - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Dear Jesse is a 1998 American documentary film by Tim Kirkman that was released theatrically by Cowboy Pictures in 1998.
Kirkman's own parallels and differences between himself and Jesse Helms are also examined: they're from the same town and college, with media interests, from families blessed by adoptions, Baptists by upbringing and, as Kirkman says, “For most of his more than 24 years in the U.S. senate, Helms has been obsessed with homosexual men.
Produced by Mary Beth Mann, Dear Jesse was edited by Joe Klotz, with music by John Crooke and cinematography by Norwood Cheek.

 'Dear Jesse': Appropriating Helms as a Foil and Fellow Traveler
"Dear Jesse" is a combination of road movie, personal exploration, lament for lost love and political statement.
And those who, as the film shows in its interviews, find him acceptable because he is predictable and, as one man says, trustworthy, will encounter nothing to shake their support.
In 1996, after a breakup with his lover in New York City and as Helms was announcing plans to run again, Kirkman returned to North Carolina to film "Dear Jesse" and to come to terms with his gay identity and his loss while visiting home and attending a college reunion.

 deseretnews.com - Movie review: Dear Jesse | Deseret Morning News Web edition
Following Kirkman's journey back to North Carolina after a painful breakup, "Dear Jesse" begins as a filmed "letter" to the man commonly referred to as "Senator No." The filmmaker tries to persuade Helms to at least understand those he would condemn.
The lawmaker refused to be interviewed for the documentary and still has not seen it (although that hasn't stopped him from issuing a blanket condemnation of it).
"Dear Jesse" is not rated but in PG territory for some mild profanities and racial slurs.

Jesse Jackson will probably not suffer the same ostracism and rejection experienced by Bakker and Swaggart.

 CNN - Review: Documentary on Jesse Helms comes from the heart - July 29, 1998
Kirkman is definitely speaking from his heart, and the best conclusion he can come to when trying to decipher Helms' particular brand of strategically righteous hate politics is that Jesse honestly means what he's saying, too.
I'd categorize that as very small conciliation, but Kirkman's interviews with a wide variety of North Carolina residents (some of them are on Helms' side) are often quite inspiring, and just as often terribly sad.
Kirkman, interviewing subjects as if all of them are his lifelong neighbors, finds that everybody in the state is psychically affected to some degree by Jesse's often repellent old-world zeal.

Mann mentioned that, in 1990, she had been very active in Jim Hunt's campaign for governor, and that as a liberal Democrat, she often wondered who it was, exactly, that shored up Helms' seemingly immutable reign in the Senate.
In Dear Jesse, we accompany Kirkman in his dad's old truck, on a series of personal – and political – pit stops.
Finally, we observe Kirkman and his father (who has come to accept and support his son's sexual orientation) driving through the Wingate neighborhood where the filmmaker grew up, wondering aloud whether, if Helms had had a gay son of his own, his attitude toward homosexuality might be different.

Kirkman's amiable Roger and Me approach takes on its subject with wit and verve, but at times the camera meanders off as the filmmaker tries to illuminate irrelevant details from his own personal life.
The most pointed moments come from Jesse himself, on air and cultivating homophobia, and from Kirkman's interviews with persons who have had dealings with the senator.
In a letter of condolence to a mother who lost her son to AIDS, Helms proselytizes the Bible's condemnation of homosexuals and tells her that her son "played Russian roulette with his sexuality." That says it all.

 Dear Jesse . Austin Chronicle . 08-03-98
Tim Kirkman's open letter to Senator Jesse Helms is a sincerely heartfelt meditation on the longtime lawmaker's homophobic and generally mean-spirited political stance.
It feels as though there are more than a few details missing from Kirkman's meditation and that his own self-exile has been exempted from the same scrutiny he holds to the exclusionary politics of Jesse Helms.
In addition to this, Dear Jesse is pocked with the kind of shaky camerawork that's indicative of novice filmmaking.
