Religious Twist!!!!

Hello my fellow bloggers,whether you're a beliver or not,The Passion of the Christ is a fantastic piece of imagery!!! Please Enjoy!!!!

"By his wounds, we were healed"
"The movie, behind the greatest event in the history of the world"

"One man changed the world forever"

Directed and co-written by Mel Gibson, one of Hollywood's most respected actors and directors, The Passion of The Christ dramatically and graphically captures the last 12 hours of Christ's life on Earth, based on the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. The film-a project in which Gibson invested 12 years of his life and $25 million of his own funds-became the Oscar-winning actor's unique passion as he researched the details of the story that, in his words, "heals me."

"Making this film has been the most difficult thing I've ever done," Gibson told Outreach Magazine. "And watching it is not easy to do. It's difficult, because Christ's Passion was difficult. But in watching it, I've found it's actually purged me. It somehow heals me to watch it. It's a strange thing. I've never experienced a film like it."

The film has stirred controversy, from difficulties finding a distributor to outright media hostility. "There have been a lot of obstacles thrown in the way," says Gibson. "It's dangerous material. You're talking about the single event that... influenced civilization as we know it now.... It's affected every possible aspect of anyone's life, whether they know it or not... this is big stuff you're dealing with."

Gibson set out to make the most authentic film about Christ ever made. He feels that the story of Jesus' death and resurrection has never been filmed accurately according to the four Gospels, the historical setting of first-century Palestine, and the physical brutality of the crucifixion. "I don't think it's ever been told as it should be," he says.

By Mel's own admission the film is very graphic, earning an R rating for violence. "There's nothing gratuitous in the film," says actor James Caviezel, who plays Jesus, "The violence is there for a purpose." Gibson explains, "My aim is to profoundly change people... The audience has to experience the harsh reality to understand it." He adds, "But when you finally see it and understand what He went through, it makes you feel not only compassion, but also a debt. You want to repay Him for the enormity of His sacrifice."

Absolutely stunning film. I caught it on TV and was shocked at how graphic it was. But rather than being horrific/repulsive, I thought it captured the suffering perfectly. Believer or not, this is amazingly powerful filmmaking.

I agree, this was a very powerful film. Initially, i opted to watch it due to Mel Gibson's work on Braveheart but once i began watching Passion, i was drawn in. Impressive, considering i'm not that religious. Brilliant film.
