synopsis

Risen is the epic Biblical story of the Resurrection, as told through the eyes of a non-believer. Clavius (Joseph Fiennes), a powerful Roman military tribune, and his aide, Lucius (Tom Felton), are tasked with solving the mystery of what happened to Jesus in the weeks following the crucifixion, in order to disprove the rumors of a risen Messiah and prevent an uprising in Jerusalem.

review

Wow! To be honest with you I see movies in this period and fantasize about all the roles to be played in my sexual fantasies! Yet! This movie broke through all my isms and evoked a spiritual awakening within me.

The movie tapped into the skeptical closet historian inside me with it’s story and perspective. I got the gist at the DVD rental store, but my mind had taken off ahead of me, as alluded to in the previous paragraph. Having just read the synopsis, refocused now, there is no way I could not be interested in this telling.

I am a believer in a god of my own understanding; I don’t trust other men’s stories about god. I am a big fan of Banned From The Bible and this movie tapped into that same interest. Simply fascinating!

And not to lose complete focus, that Joseph Fiennes is just a fine as his brother, Ralph!

God, why don’t you answer this prayer?
