Did You Know?

While Jesus is shown here being crucified on a traditionally-shaped cross, the thieves on either side of him are shown having been crucified on X-shaped crosses. This may date back to the early medieval painters who believed that in depicting the two thieves as being crucified in exactly the same manner as Jesus, they were diminishing the unique, special nature of Jesus' death. Thus they began to show the thieves as being crucified in manners unlike that inflicted on Jesus.See more »

JUDAS lacks authenticity and vision, 5 March 2004
Author: Jason Grass from Oklahoma

JUDAS is an awful movie that lacks vision. This is best written off as Fontana's vanity project.

JUDAS was written by Tom Fontana, the producer of Strip Search and a writer of HBO's violent prison drama OZ. JUDAS is boring and without drama, a mark of death for a TV movie. The movie is a buy-the-numbers production of little ambition; it is generic to the point that one is hard-pressed to find any artistic vision. The religious context is beyond dubious; to put it kindly, the religious context is made up by Tom Fontana. The only thing that keeps JUDAS from becoming a farce of Christianity is the director's lack of intensity. JUDAS inexplicably meanders from one made-up scene to the next.

Judas the man was so vastly insignificant that the Disciples and Apostles had to refer to him as Iscariot so as not to confuse him with the other equally irrelevant Judas. This movie makes Judas Iscariot a figurehead of Christianity.

The theology, plot, and dialogue of JUDAS are entirely made up. Contrary to what this film depicts, Judas Iscariot was not a conflicted and complex disciple with political leanings, as the secular producers of this film would have you believe. Judas Iscariot was called disciple but he was nothing more than an errand-boy, a gofer with so little faith he was ultimately possessed by Satan at the last supper. Jesus promptly ordered Judas Iscariot to betray Him. Judas was given these words: `What you are about to do, do quickly.' The other disciples (according to the Gospels) thought Jesus was telling Judas to go buy bread! The entire betrayal of Jesus takes one verse of scripture, yet Fontana believes it takes 2 hours to convey this one line of scripture? No wonder this movie wanders aimlessly in search of some profound spiritual truth! Fontana ignores the Bible and relies on his esteemed insight instead.

JUDAS was so ahead of its time Disney has had to lock it up in the archives for three years until a more controversial film came along to obscure the outrage!
