Quite frankly, I don't understand the brouhaha this film generated when it was released. Sure, the film had its moments, but the ending wrapped things up in a christian-like way, I thought. What bothered me more about the film was the fact that they gave Judas, played by Harvey Keitel, red hair. Maybe they thought his name was Judas Isacarrot. But, I digress.
To sum things up, Brian thought this was a brilliant piece of cinema. I thought watching it was like going to church.
