The Passion of the Christ

Ok, so I meant to post this last week, but sense I forget everything, I went to see the Passion last week (on Ash Wednesday, opening night). It was quite the experience. I don't think I've ever cried so hard in my life. I was sad, disgusting, angry, and drained all at once. I have never been that emotionally attached to a film in my life. It was powerful for me.

I didn't see any Anti-Semitic sentiment in the film. I don't see what the Jewish fuss was about. But that's just my opinion.

Anyway, I know that I have a different connection to the movie because I'm a Christian. No, I'm not saying that non-Christians would not feel compassion for Christ in the movie or even that my faith gives me some kind of special understanding. It's just that your viewpoint is different if you're watching a man get beat as opposed to watching a man get beat to save your life.

So, for all my non-Christian friends, are you planning on seeing the film? And, if you have, what did you think? I'm curious to see what a person who doesn't identify with Christ as the Messiah thinks of the movie.
