AMERICA MAGAZINE ARTICLE on the Passion film.
"Evangelicals and traditionalists will be deeply moved by the vividness of the Passion and will continue to market posters and study guides about it to further their outreach. Mainstream Protestants and Vatican II Catholics will be dismayed by the absence of theological reflection and historical contexts."
by Rev. Richard A. Blake, S.J. (professor of fine arts and co-director of the film studies program at Boston College).
PADRE POINT: "absence of theological reflection?" Mary, Eucharist, sacrifice, nature of evil, etc...???
Fr. Blake must have taken lots of popcorn breaks!
