Part One: The Jesus Film

General Introduction
1.
Peter Malone, Movie Christs and Antichrists ( New York: Crossroad, 1990), 21.
2.
The best description and critique of this development I have come across is in a brief article by Joseph Marty, a French priest-film critic: "Chromo, patro, mélo: le cinéma, côté Saint Sulpice", in Le film religieux -- CinémAction No.49 ( Paris: Corlet, 1988), 62-70.

Introduction
1.
The only exceptions here are the most hypothetical non-Christians who have somehow lived totally isolated from the Christian religious or cultural tradition and who find themselves facing a film about Jesus.

Chapter One: The Early Years
1.
André Gaudreault, "La Passion du Christ: une forme, un genre, un discours", in An Invention of the Devil? Religion and the Early Cinema. Une Invention du Diable? Le Cinéma des Premiers Temps et Religion, edited by Roland Cosandey , André Gaudreault, Tom Gunning (Sainte Foy, Canada: Les Presses de l'Université Laval, 1992), 95.
2.
Frank Kermode, "John," in The Literary Guide to the Bible, edited by Robert Alter and Frank Kermode ( Cambridge: Belknap Press, 1987), 459.
3.
Isabelle Raynauld, "Les scénarios de la Passion selon Pathé" ( 1902-1914), in An Invention of the Devil?, 130.
4.
Charles Keil, "From the Manger to the Cross: The New Testament Narrative and the Question of Stylistic Retardation", in An Invention of the Devil?, 112.
5.
ibid. Keil is referring here to one film, but clearly what he says applies to the genre.
10.
Ronald Holloway, Beyond the Image: Approaches to the Religious Dimension in the Cinema ( Geneva: Oikoumene, 1977), 48.
