Mel Gibson's Passion movie has been praised by some Vatican types and criticized by others. My question is this: what if the movie is both an artistic triumph with questionable content, along the lines of Leni Riefenstahl's Triumph of the Will or D.W. Griffith's The Birth of a Nation.

I don't know if some people can cope with the possibility that it has some anti-Semitic leanings, yet is worth seeing. People seek dichotomies, and wish to describe things as either all good or all bad.

For my own part, no matter what is said about the film, I will probably rent it when it comes out on video.
