Maybe he is a messiah after all? 

In my longish review of "The Passion" a few weeks ago, I wrote that "lest I myself get accused of blasphemy for comparing the controversial director/producer to Christ, let me make it clear I don't consider Gibson a saint, much less a Hollywood Messiah" for his achievement in stirring up so much controversy.

But... Almost one in ten people in Poland and only behind "Titanic" as the most popular American film ever... Nearly one in ten people in 3 days in Muslim Qatar... Breaks records in Italy... And in Australia, Gibson is credited with helping to bring about the biggest Easter Sunday attendance at churches.

How about a sequel?
