CULTURE DIGEST: 'Passion Recut' has less violence

By Erin Curry
Feb 23, 2005

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP)--In an effort to appeal to a wider audience including those kept from viewing "The Passion of The Christ" because of its depictions of brutal violence, Mel Gibson is releasing a tamer version of the film March 11 called "The Passion Recut."

Gibson has edited at least six minutes out of the original film and is substituting different camera angles to show less blood and gore in the graphic scenes of the torture, scourge and crucifixion of Christ, according to The Dallas Morning News.

Bob Berney, president of distributor Newmarket Films, said he and Gibson are aware that "some people felt the gore overshadowed the message of the film." The subtle changes will emphasize the sacrifice of Jesus rather than just the suffering, he told the newspaper.

Even with less violence, the MPAA still gave the new Passion version an R rating. The film's production company, Icon Productions, has opted to release The Passion Recut without a rating.

"Exhibitors can decide for themselves how they want to handle the situation," Berney said. "Some may choose to still treat it as an R and not let teens see it, unless accompanied by adults. Others may be willing to treat it as a PG-13. The film is still probably too intense for children, but Mel hoped to make it more available for teens."

The Passion Recut will be carried in theaters on 500 to 750 screens nationwide beginning just before Easter. After The Passion's February 2004 release, the film about Jesus' final hours on earth grossed more than $370 million domestically and more than $611 million worldwide.

During the upcoming Oscars Feb. 27, The Passion will be sidelined to nominations only in technical categories, illustrating what film critic Michael Medved called "Hollywood's profound, almost pathological discomfort with the traditional religiosity embraced by most of its mass audience."

Medved said the Academy shut out one of the year's biggest box office hits and instead nominated for the major categories a list of films that "went out of their way to assault or insult the sensibilities of most believers," notably �Million Dollar Baby� with its portrayal of assisted suicide as heroic and �Kinsey� in its depiction of sexuality without limits.

There is a theory that Israeli archaeologists found the tomb.

And the Israeli government threatens to reveal the remains
unless they get unconditional support from the U. S.

That sounds like BS to me.

I saw it for free during an obvious Christian conversion fest. I high-tailed it before the minister started doing his needless commentary, and I refused to fill out their "information card."

If I was a film director, I'd claim the movie was less violent, but secretly release one that was 10 times more violent than the original. Just for laughs.

From what I heard, the recut version is around 7 minutes shorter.
