I know it's been shoved in our faces on the news for weeks, and part of me just wants to ignore it, but I also have a side interest in depictions of Jesus in American film (I took a college class on it). Here are two reviews that hammer (pun intended) the film: NYTimes & New Yorker. If you've seen any of the interviews of Gibson you definitely sense that this guy is all screwed up and is now channeling his craziness into an extreme religious identity. From all the debate about it I want to see the film, but I also don't want to give my nine bucks to that nut.
