hey guys. i was curious: what are your opinions about mel gibson's film? personally, i think it's great. i watched it again tonite, being that today is good friday. lets keep it civil. all opinions are cool - just be respectful of others. here's what i like about the film: they actually used people that could pass for jews - as i'm sure many of them were (as opposed to the british jesus who is often used and who always comes off too pasty white to look authentic). they did the film in aramaic, latin and shoot, now i forget the third language i noticed tonite. they kept it pretty true to the accounts of the bible. while the gore is unbelievably pervasive, i think it's fairly true to the bible and since i believe that i put christ on the cross - it's a good representation for me to see (not as a guilt trip, but as a visual representation of what i believe to be God's love). i liked that they portrayed the depth of relationships, as well as the flashbacks to other biblical stories. here's what i wish would have been different: I think that satan should have been more beautiful, and less creepy. i wish they would have filmed the part where jesus is about to be arrested by the guards and they all fall down when he says "I AM". i found some of the eagerness of the guards slightly unbelievable. it was a bit heavy on the slow motion. overall, i think it's phenomenal tho. i'm looking foward to seeing gibson's latest movie about the mayans.... or is it aztecs? i think it's mayans.
