Sister Roseís Passion (2004/Documentary)


Picture: C†††† Sound: C+†††† Extras: B†††† Documentary: B



As a response to the anti-Semitism perceived as being in Mel Gibsonís The Passion Of The Christ, the Academy Awards nominated the unusually short Oren Jacoby documentary Sister Roseís Passion (2004) about how this very young nun back in the 1950s took on The Vatican, Europe and anti-Jewish hatred in its institutionalized from within The New Testament and caused change that is still happening today.


Not that anti-Semitism has not risen again, but this does come out at a time when all the Semite religions are hijacked and everything that should not be happening form the very people in power who should know better is begin allowed to happen again.Never forgetting goes beyond The Holocaust these days and besides readdressing the obvious that can never be assumed to be permanently learned lessons, this is a history lesson of how change can be made for the better and that it does not have to be through violence.Great to have it on DVD.


The 1.33 X 1 image varies in quality throughout, with images a bit softer than would have been hoped for, but this is still typical of most such documentaries that reach back decades as this does.The Dolby Digital 2.0 is simple stereo at best and just fine for such a project.Extras include Sister Rose at the Tribeca Film Festival, outtakes, text on director Jacoby, a text statement by him on his work, his Charlie Rose statement and more interview clips with Sister Rose herself.She is worth listening to very closely.
