Abstract Rikk Watts can catalogue his enjoyment of the film, The Passion, which has had mass appeal. But Mel Gibson's unhistorical additions reveal a disturbing willingness to use repugnant anti-Semitic subtexts as well as violence to elicit moviegoers' emotions. While Gibson may claim that it expresses his faith, the film seems less about art and personal faith than about what Hollywood does best— making money by sacrificing artistic integrity.
