Passion of the Christ: Definitive Edition
Happy Sexegesima Sunday. Today marks my 1year anniversary of my first "Tridentine" Liturgy at St. Michael's. At the time I didn't know that this is where I'd end up. But here I am.
Anyway, just a quick note for today - I purchased the Passion of the Christ definitive edition this weekend and it was a worthy purchase. Are the special features worth buying the movie all over again? IMHO: Yes. Both the cut version (less bloody) and the original version (watching is a penance in and of itself) are on this DVD, even though the box is confusing.
So far, I watched it with the "footnote - a la pop-up video" commentary. Watching the movie with that made the purchase a worthy one alone. The best thing I learned so far is that the movie was shot "to look like moving Caravaggio painting." It does - and now I see the movie in a whole new light!
