A perspective on "The Passion"

Peace and blessings,

I came across this clip the other day and I thought it was an interesting stance to take on the movie "The Passion of the Christ." In this clip, Cornel West talks about the socio-political contexts of the Roman empire during Jesus' time and the "American" empire today, and how his view the former was not adequately addressed in the film. Enjoy and speekonit...

Since you're doing movie previews, check out these movies.

1) "One Night With the King" - based on the Biblical story of Queen Esther. Check link below.

2) "The Color of the Cross" - based on Jesus Life, but featuring Black actors. I think this movie is phenomenal. Check link below.
