The Passion of the Christ (2004)
No words can describe the depth of this film
This is a graphic depiction of the trial and crucifixion of Christ. Chronicling the last 12 hours of Jesus of Nazareth's life, the film starts in the garden of Gethsemane were Jesus has gone to pray after the last supper. He is then tempted by Satan and then betrayed by Judas. Arrested on charges of blasphemy by the Pharisees, he is tried then condemn to death and is handed over to the Romans. He is nailed to the cross and guarded there till he dies. The final shot is (this should not be a spoiler) Jesus awakening from death.
An Unbelievable performance from Jim Caviezel, Maia Morgenstren(Mary) and the most unforgettable performance by Rosalinda Celentano(Satan). Everyone I know couldn't get the image of her out of their heads for at least a week after watching this film. For authenticity Producer/Director Mel Gibson made the film in all Aramaic with English Subtitles, which wasn't a problem at all. Spectacular cinematography added to the timelessness of this period piece.
This is a filmmaker's movie due to the fact that every aspect of film-making in this picture was executed with precision. Allot of people are concerned about the graphic nature of this film but to quote Jack Cafferty of CNN American Morning "The violence in this movie isn't gratuitous it's real." What I loved about this movie the most is the way it touched the people afterward in the theatre I saw it in. No one left the theatre with the same attitude they had when they came in, it drastically changed the look on the faces of the people I was with. For A film to have an effect like that just blows my mind. The Passion is the love that Jesus has for man kind that he would go through so much pain so that we could be forgiven for our sins.
