THE PASSION OF CHRIST IS GRIM NIGHTMARE
NOTHING I have ever seen has been more difficult to watch than this.This makes me want to see the film even less than I already do, especially after the comments Crossan reports about the lyrical beauty of the violence, which I find sickening. Curiosity will drive me to see it as soon as it is out in March; but I won't be looking forward to it.
It is, without a doubt, one of the most violent films ever made - two hours and six minutes of unremitting, relentlessly graphic brutality.
Mel Gibson's controversial story of the last hours of Jesus Christ is a sickening bloodbath and, in my opinion, suitable viewing only for sadists . . . .
