Religion, a lethal weapon
10 December 2004 | by (NY) – See all my reviews

It is no secret that none of his films have done poorly outside of the US, and that Europe is pretty liberal (except for The Vatican). But this documentary was not only well-constructed and scarily true, but funny as well. Granted that this isn't Michael Moore quality the whole point of this special was to watch PoC with both eyes open. It's Mel's father that's a Holocaust denier, and Mel said he believes that his father doesn't lie to him. A very creative way of saying that he agrees with this statement. But he is an actor, and he has to be careful of what he has to say. Bill Maher is right, religion is a neurological disorder and obviously Mel has done one too many stunts that has resulted in brain trauma. Friends of Mel only come to his defense because they're afraid of him, you should be too. I mean look at Arnie he's the governor of California! What if Mel becomes an elected official? I watched PoC and agreed with the critics, it was self-serving over-dramatic crap that had linguists and biblical historians up in arms reviving a dead language (Aramaic) that we're not sure if it is the language that Christ (who along with his followers were Jewish) spoke more than 2,000 years ago.
