Peter Chattaway's FilmChat blog

Peter Chattaway, who often makes useful comments on the Jesus films (as well as on films in general, especially those with religious themes), has set up a new blog:


He already has a useful post on The Passion of the Christ:

The Hype is Officially Over

In particular, he focuses on the flop of The Passion Recut. He links to the on-line reproduction of his recent article for Re-viewing the Passion called Come and See, well worth a read if you have not yet read it. I think he gets The Passion about right and is one of the few commentators who, like me, notes some of the film's more interesting elements, especially the Jesus-eye perspective of both the flashbacks and the camera shots.
