    Looking at film interpretations of the stories in the Bible - past, present and future, as well as preparation for a future work on Straub/Huillet's Moses und Aron and a few bits and pieces on biblical studies.

    Rejesus on The Passion

    See all posts on this film.
    Rejesus' sub-site on The Passion went live over night, and includes a piece by me on other films about Jesus. I look at King of Kings (1961), Gospel According to St. Matthew(1964), Jesus Christ Superstar (1973), Jesus of Nazareth (1977), Jesus (1979), Last Temptation of Christ (1988), Jesus (1999) and The Passion of the Christ (2004), and mention a handful of others such as The Greatest Story Ever Told and Godspell along the way.

    There's also some new interviews, some background on the original story and more stills from the programme. Interestingly enough, I've perhaps seen about 30-40 images from this film now, but haven't seen a single one of what is arguably the most iconic moment in the story - Jesus on the cross.

    Over the weekend my review of the film, and perhaps one or two other pieces will be added to the site as well.
