Not to get religious on you, but I do like this image of longing and faith-

The Disciples Peter and John on the way to the Sepulchre on the morning of the Resurrection by Eugene Burnand

I dunno.. not really my cup of tea. I'm more a Grünewaldian when it comes to Good Friday/Easter.

Thanks for the tip.

Yes, there are many ways to approach the legend. I do appreciate the beauty of formal crucifix imagery, though I think for some it is an outlet for baser impulses (Mel Gibson's beat-up-Jesus movie is a prime example). Like all organized religion, it comes with baggage.

Frankly, I find Negativeland's "Mashin' of the Christ" more honest than Mel, if not more respectful.

And the crucifix hallucination scene in Verhoeven's "Der Vierte Mann" is cute.

A few years back on the Fringe Festival circuit Canadian actor John Huston performed The Gospel of Mark word-for-word. It was  staged without props as a re-telling, more than a re-enactment. He combined a number of translations, and ended Mark's book (which is the oldest gospel) as it originally ended - without a resurrection. It was very interesting to experience it as a oral piece - not chopped up into bite-sized chunks of dogma. What struck me most is that throughout the story Jesus kept telling his disciples to keep his miracles secret, and spent much of the story running from crowds of people so he could do his work.

My favourite serious film treatment of the story is Denys Arcand's "Jesus de Montreal".
