Gibson isn't new to this. His cold shoulder treatment from Hollywood, for MAKING this film, really set the tone for the "get Mel" theme. It didn't matter what good he did, he and his family were excoriated from every angle. That's Hollyweird for ya. They just couldn't stand it...a movie about Jesus that was good, decent, true, with NO ant-Christ message.
His masterpiece, Passion of the Christ will outlive all the Gibson haters, as it should.

Long before we had movie stars, western art had painters. Caravaggio, for example, was a particularly nasty person, but his art endures, while few are aware of the reputation he bore during his lifetime....
