To: what's up
I seem to recall some bad Jews in Zeferelli's "Jesus of Nazareth."
Given that this director made Jesus of Nazareth and knows Mel Gibson professionally (and something about the family and how Mel was raised), his opinion is worth considering.
I've seen several Mel Gibson interviews over the years. Each one had me shaking my head--thought the guy was plumb crazy. The interview with O'Reilly the other night was the first one where MG was actually coherent.
Since he's had a long and productive and successful career, and a good longterm marriage and what seem to be a lot of good kids, I have to think that he may just have some very bizarre affects, but is not actually bizarre.

He doesn't claim to know the family personally...just the "family culture" whatever that means.
I'm just commenting on the fact that Zeferelli claims to want to "unburden the Jews of Deicide", yet depicts some Jews negatively in his own film.
