10. The Passion Of The Christ
Sticking with the Christ theme, this appearance is, ironically, one of the prettiest things in what turns out to be a painfully long, very violent and ultimately ugly film. So alluring, in fact, is Rosalinda Celentanto, that at first I thought Jesus was talking to Eve, and then went on to wanting to sleep with the Devil (but perhaps that is something I really shouldn't share). Satan's appearances, though numerous, are brief. The first is near the beginning of the movie, tempting Christ away from his inevitable martyrdom. Another appearance seem to have had lots of people scratching their heads. Satan appears holding a somewhat monstrous baby. This imagery is actually quite obvious, but most people don't want to admit it because it means taking a long hard look at themselves and their faith. That hideous child? May well not be just a parody of iconic Catholic imagery, but also a comment on Jesus' legacy. His gift to the world, one of the most bloody and murderous religions in history: Christianity.
