I have offered my brief and very negative review of Mel Gibson's The Passion below. But I saw the other day a report on that movie on Al-Manar TV (Hizbullah's station). Unsurprisingly, the station was very favorable toward the movie, and they interviewed a Maronite priest who went on to blame the controversy over the movie on a "Zionist conspiracy." So Hizbullah, the Maronite Church, and Mel Gibson are now in the same trench? J'accuse.
