I went to see 'Risen", directed by Kevin Reynolds.
It is the fictional story of the spiritual resurrection of Clavius,
a Roman centurion whose soul is fried from the brutality of his
job. Pilate gives him the task of finding the body of Jesus before
the disciples hide it and declare that Christ has risen from
You know how it goes.
If you don't, read Matthew 27 & 28 or Luke 24.
The movie was mildly entertaining. The landscape (somewhere in
Spain) was spectacularly barren - meant to look as barren as the
soul of Clavius I suppose.
The problem is that there are no women in the movie, just a tiny
role for Mary Magdalene - looking far more dewy than one might
suppose a hooker of her time and place would have looked.
It is 2016.
That no woman thing looked antiquated.
People hoping to find the Divine Feminine within Christianity
shouldn't bother spending money or time on this movie.
The rest of you can go for a laugh.
