I posted my review of The Passion of the Christ here.
But even more to the point is my response to a question raised in the comments to that post that ends with this:
The mindset that made this movie is the same one that caused feminist Monique Wittig to write:
“There was a time when you were not a slave, remember that. You walked alone, full of laughter, you bathed bare-bellied…You say, it does not exist. But remember. Make an effort to remember, or, failing that, invent”.
And so I was not surprised when the image of evil had a wickedly female face. I was not suprised when a snake slithered from around her feet and, of course, the Christ stomped on it.
The women in the film cry a lot, watch a lot, constantly flit around the edges of the action.....
No wonder we still have to invent.
