I am not religious.
I was raised Catholic, but quickly distanced myself from that, as parts of it very much opposed my own sense of logic and morals. But. BUT.
This movie is SO watchable, no matter your religion or lack thereof. It puts down the story of the last few days of Jesus' life in such an enthralling way, using the interesting concept of a desert performance with anachronisms and OH MY GOD, THE MUSIC. The music is just so absolutely stunning, fitting every scene and character it's paired with and setting the tone marvelously. And then some of the things they did to increase the drama, like that montage of Jesus nailed to a cross, the cinematography when he dies, the music suddenly stopping.. UWU.
Lastly, fucking shoutout to Herod and Pilate because I love those drama queens sO DAMN MUCH.
