'The Passion' - Mel Gibson's latest movie
I have not seen this film and had not really planned to (it is not yet on release in the UK). However, this review in Slate by Christopher Hitchens does, to use a dreadful pun, 'slate' the movie.
Some of the things he says about Mr Gibson have made coalesce some of the vague impressions I have had about Mel Gibson for some years - I cannot say why, but he has always given me the creeps. I will certainly now never pay money to see this film (thus contributing funds to this person's cause), but if it is in some years shown on television I probably will watch it as a sort of cultural experiment. But for now I think I have learned all I need to know. (Link thru Andrew Sullivan - whose review I had already read a day or so ago.)
