I didn't cry as much when I did the last viewings but I still cringed at the crucifixion scenes. The squishy sounds and the crunching sounds were still a little too much for me. I also tried to catch as many nuances inserted in the scenes as possible and trying to recall where in the Bible the scenes and dialogues were lifted from. Like the line "Hail to the Wormy King!" or when he was called "King of Worms," although not exactly found in the New Testament, was taken from a much older reference. I'd like to watch this again on the big screen later. Hopefully.
