"Bloodline" is a documentary from the Cinema Libre Studio directed by Bruce Burgess that explores the popular belief that Jesus married Mary Magdalene and fled to France with their child by following clues left in churches. It sounds very "DaVinci Code" and according to IMDB was released in 2008, 2 years after the "DaVinci Code" movie, more than likely in response to the peak of interest in the subject raised by the book/movie.
Bruce Burgess right away comes clean that the interest in the book is what propelled him to investigate the claims. He goes straight to the Louvre within the first few minutes and talks about the hidden messages in paintings and literature. The footage in the film has been taken from 2005 to 2006.
Burgess speaks with a spokesman for the Priory of Sion that became a public organization in 1956 but could not give away all the answers. This man indicated that certain works of arts are coded to allow a journey to the truth but it is too dangerous to say outright on film. Another mysterious guy in a cafe walks up and hands the spokesman a card with writing on it after which he shut up. Is the Priory real or a hoax? If it were a hoax, it is unlike any other hoax in history making the documents and "proof" so difficult to come across hiding the materials in libraries and churches. By releasing information gradually over a great deal of time, it is a lot more likely to eventually become widely accepted.

Yes, true believers - Mary Magdalene is buried in France. The Man doesn't want you to know. (The Man = the Catholic Church) But you, brave truth-seeker, will go boldly, where no hoax-ster has gone before! Yes, into her very tomb. Of course, the Man will surely suppress these astounding discoveries. But you, noble Seeker of Truth, you now HAVE THE TRUTH on film.
I kind of enjoyed the wild-eyed goofballs they had playing representatives for the fabled Priory of Sion. (People, just google this. This is well-established as a hoax.) Were they in on the joke? Or did the movie makers troll through the underbelly of the lunatic world of conspiracy theorists, to find these people - dropping hints, looking knowingly, pretending to be afraid, or to be holding back on much more information. Hungry actors, or crazies? You be the judge - IF you have what it takes to sit through this dreck. They did go after, and get a small amount of usable footage from real scholars - not that what those PhDs said supported the silly premise of the film.
So if you really want to know if Jesus was married - seriously, you should look elsewhere. Ask any real historian, who isn't on the crackpot fringe.Read more ›
