Your Blue-Eyed Christ

The literal first thought that ran through my mind when I watched the trailer for The Passion of the Christ was: Wow, everyone looks so white. Especially Christ.

That's rather odd.

So I haven't gone. Yet. Because I'm not sure if I can get past Gibson's Catholic context, or his blue-eyed, stringy-haired Christ.

The images, the history, the words, the Word, are pretty powerful already, without dolby surround sound. No?
