In an ironic coincidence, my wife and I have been watching the HBO series Band of Brothers in this same week that we went to see the Passion. Both deal with sacrificial suffering. Both are extremely graphic. In my wife’s opinion Band of Brothers is worse because of its documentary style. As moving as the Passion is, I think Band of Brothers is the most powerful 'entertainment' experience that I've ever seen. Yet because of the trancendant subject matter of the Passion it remains a more profound work of art.
