The Passion of the Christ

The Passion of the Christ is a 2004 American epic biblical drama film directed by Mel Gibson and starring Jim Caviezel as Jesus Christ. It depicts the Passion of Jesus largely according to the New Testament Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. I... t also draws on pious accounts such as the Friday of Sorrows along with other devotional writings, such as those attributed to Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich.The film covers primarily the final 12 hours of Jesus' life, beginning with the Agony in the Garden of Gethsemane, the insomnia and grievance of the Virgin Mary, but ending with a brief depiction of his resurrection. Flashbacks of Jesus as a child and as a young man with Mary his mother, giving the Sermon on the Mount, teaching the Twelve Apostles, and at the Last Supper are some of the images depicted. The dialogue is entirely in reconstructed Aramaic and Latin with vernacular subtitles.The film has been highly controversial and received mixed reviews, with some critics claiming that the extreme violence in the film "obscures its message." Catholic sources have questioned the authenticity of the non-biblical material the film drew on   more

I've seen a summary of "God's Not Dead". I don't know about the screenplay, but the arguments that it gives for the existence of the personal Christian God do not strike me as new or convincing.
