crumbs from Gospels
29 March 2015 | by VincentiuSee all my reviews

it has one virtue - the icons/religious images on film credits. and a lot of sins. the script is chaotic and too strange. nothing is coherent. crumbs from Gospels in disorder. fragments, slices, not purpose, mixture of a carpenter who discover his mission and the Son of God, the political intrigue and the atmosphere from a part from Roman Empire. it is only expression of good intentions without credible result. and, after so many films about Christ, Killing Jesus is only another deception. because it has not message, because its ambiguity has as fruit only confusion, because not bad actors are only hangers for the roles, because the image about politic of director/script writer/novel's authors remains contemporary, not exam of roots of the Jesus time. because all seems be a cultural fast food. because the ambition is different by possibilities to create a real good story. it could be only an eccentric sketch about Jesus. is it enough ? maybe not. because it is a story only for the teller , not for his audience. in fact, only one of bizarre news/documentaries about Jesus in the Easter's period.
