I seem to recall some bad Jews in Zeferelli's "Jesus of Nazareth."
Herod the Great was a real creep as was Herod Agrippa. Also, the Sandhedrin not too great.
Anyone recall the same?

Of course Jews killed Jesus. But so did we all. And that is pretty clear in this movie.

The public verdict on this film can be seen in the box office receipts: $26.6 million for ONE DAY. The next highest film, something called "50 First Dates" barely took in $1 million. The Top Ten films yesterday took in $29.9 million; The Passion accounted for 90 percent of it! Source: www.boxofficemojo.com.

Gee, I've seen Jesus of Nazareth about 3 times. I thought the Jews petitioned Pilate to kill Jesus in that one too (Like the gospels and Passion). I could be wrong though.

"I've seen plenty die, replied Gibson, Zeffirelli claims. When I can, to relax, I go to my farm and kill a lot of calves on the days when they are slaughtered."

(We cannot defeat foreign enemies of the Constitution if we yield to the domestic ones.)
The Italian director further stresses that, unlike Gibson's life of Christ, his own 1977 film "Jesus of Nazareth" was written by the famed English author Anthony Burgess with Suso Cecchi D'Amico taking into account the principles laid down by the Second Vatican Council, "To render justice to Jews and unburden them of the accusation of Diocide. Zeffirelli finished his article with a question: And now where have we gone back to?"
It is the height of arrogance for this man to assume the death of Jesus was solely about the Jews. And, it is ignorant to assume that anyone could take the life of Christ.
"They tell me that in America,
This is where the problem begins.... Obviously he hasn't seen the movie.

Does Zeffirelli like his movies reviewed by individuals who have not viewed them?

Has this guy seen the movie?
Zeferelli is himself Jewish, so it is not as if he is dissinteresteed. He just happens to be wrong.

"Zeffirelli recalls Gibson saying: "A wounded animal about to die does not stay with a fixed look, but rolls its eyes in the final spasms, first together, then in the opposite direction, like a cross eyed person. It's almost funny."
Wow... they are going after Mel Gibson with a fury.
Something really amazing and important and world-changing is happening here.....
God bless Mel Gibson for his commitment and devotion! I can't wait to see the movie.
It will get worse. Every god-forsaken criminal on the planet will come out against this film and Mel Gibson.
You see, when Zefferili or anyone in Hollywood makes tons of bucks, they wallow in the lust and greed.
They usually only pick scripts based on the ability to make tons of money. We know where their values lie.
Mel Gibson, from all appearances, did not make this movie to get rich.
None of the FILM/TV/MEDIA are going to accept he was Inspired. They would accept one of 'their own' as being inspired, and have said so before. Mel Gibson has always been an outsider to them, because he is a real person, not a 'flash in the pan' like most of them are.
Ted Nugent - real.
George Bush - Real.
Mel Gibson - Real.
Clintons - hiding from God.
Kerry - Hiding from God.
Marylyn Manson - Hiding from God.
BTW, my girlfriend spray painted over a poster of Mr. Manson that was a promo for a concert here in town, and it cost me $1000 so far.
And I couldn't have spent the money in any better way.
