Spoilers? Well, how could there be? For anybody who knows the story of Jesus, it should be like watching Titanic---the ship sinks, get over it. Right? But I want to talk about something very specific in the movie.
It was a good movie, I thought. No matter what a person believes, what happened to him was horrible and cruel. But, in that movie, why did they have to make him fall down so many times in slow motion when he was carrying the cross? And why does it seem that when he is carrying the cross, all the women seem to get it and know who he is and that he is special, but the men seem clueless? But, I digress.
For people who have seen the movie, they will probably recall a creature in a black hood who hangs out a lot around Jesus. No one sees him. He seems evil to me. I assumed that the character was supposed to be Satan. But what if it wasn't? At the end of the movie, it shows the hooded character acting rather grief stricken when Jesus is dead. If it was Satan, why was he so sad? Or do I have this all wrong?
So, this is the dialogue I had with my spouse after the movie
Me: "Why did that hooded bald guy look so sad,if it was Satan?"
Spouse: "What if it wasn't Satan, what if it was God?"
Me: "If that is the case, why did they make God so ugly and evil looking?"
Spouse "Well, the bible says that man was made in God's image. Man can be pretty ugly. And all the men in that movie were pretty hideous"
Me: "Yeah, but nobody is supposed to see God".
Spouse: "Nobody in the movie saw the hooded creature."
I am not trying to make light of the movie, I liked it. It was moving and powerful, but sometimes I can't help the way my mind works......
Did anyone else who saw the movie make this weird leap or am I all alone in this?
