The Passion

I decided to watch the Passion tonight. I don't think I was as prepared for it as I might have thought. It's a deeply moving work. I don't think I've ever been quite as moved by a film before. I don't think there's more I can say...

Current Mood: melancholy melancholy

I had a similar experience with that movie; it leaves you speechless. It makes you cry, makes you lose your appetite, and leaves you stunned. But, after seeing it and thinking about it and hearing people's responses to it. I think its a bunch of crap.

It hasn't changed my life. I didn't walk away from the movie feeling like there was something I needed to do in response. Good theatre invokes a response. Good theatre makes one hate injustice or at least makes you passionate about something. Sure, people can say "I'm passionate about Jesus!" But, it's not the same.

What is the point of the Passion? To show the passion of Jesus? What about his life? Was his life pointless? Did he really live to die? Doesn't that kindof suggest that life is pointless?

I think that the movie was based on patriarchal values... I'm also sure that Gibson made a buttload of money of that movie. Personally, Jesus Christ Superstar makes more sense to me than the Passion does, and it certainly pokes fun at Jesus as a movie star. Which isn't who Jesus is. My sister says that she liked the movie, because it was like being there or something like that (not a direct quote, but I vaguely remember something like that). Was James Caviezel crucified you? Were you there when they crucified James Caviezel? Yeah. I was there. I heard he rose again later and made a bunch of money...

Think on this movie. Think if it really has made that big of difference 20 months from now...

Re: well...

Like any piece of art, the initial reactions are often the ones most remembered, but few often think of what affect it should have on one's life. I believe that art in general only has the power to impact as much as the audience is willing to take from it. The movie has the potential to change my life if I choose to draw from it the necessary catalyst to do so. However, if I choose not to draw anything from the movie, then I can be sure that it won't change my life any.
