Talk About the Passions

Considering the tremendous importance of Jesus to many millions, it’s understandable that supporters and opponents of both films were often more interested in what they wanted to see in these works than in what their makers actually accomplished. Still, it’s unfortunate that the controversy has made it impossible for many viewers to really see either film, because The Passion of the Christ and The Last Temptation of Christ, despite their flaws, are both deeply personal, conscientious, and—each in its own peculiar way—reverent films that deserve to exist as more than floating cultural signifiers and to be taken seriously by believers and nonbelievers alike.
