Passion of the Christ, The: Director's Edition (Blu-ray)

    There are censorship issues with this blu-ray: Firstly the "Passion Recut" has about five minutes removed, toning down some of the more extreme moments of violence throughout. Secondly, in both versions of the film, when Caiaphas states "His blood is on us and on our children!" - a quote historically interpreted as being a curse on the Jewish people - the subtitles have been removed, but the original dialogue remains in Aramaic.
