Editorial Reviews

'Bloodline' investigates the popular belief that Jesus married Mary Magdalene, who fled to southern France with their child. Burgess and team crack the shadowy secret society, known as the Priory of Scion. Their investigation follows clues linking the Knights Templar and the legend of Mary Magdalene with messages imbedded in the decor of the famed church at Rennes-le-Chateau in France, leading ultimately to stunning discoveries: a buried chest with artifacts dating to 1st century Jerusalem and a hidden tomb filled with treasure and a mummified corpse draped in a shroud bearing a distinctive red cross.

I received one of those auto-generated e-mails from Amazon today suggesting titles I might be interested in - at the top of the list was "Bloodline". I find it strange that Amazon is continuing to sell this title after the recent public admission by Ben Hammott that the entire tomb story was a carefully contrived hoax. I already own a copy and saw the film during its brief theatrical run. There were many, many evidential flaws in the film, and these have been explained satisfactorily by Hammott's confession. If anyone is still looking to purchase this title, they should be aware of the fact that many of the claims are fraudulent and much of the evidence faked. And that's according to Mr. Hammott himself, as revealed in his recent "mea culpa" interview on co-producer Rene Barnett's internet radio podcast, I would post a link but Amazon won't allow it.

Bloodline Review

"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.

Tim Wallace-Murphy, an author on cracking codes speaks about Latin and anagrams and solving puzzles. He speaks of it as a game but asks the question, who is playing it?

This movie is really for the open minded. At first I was opposed to any negative view particularly when it came to my belief. I realized I needed to do my own research, if for nothing else but to prove I was right. Was I ever wrong. The pain & betrayal I felt for being lied to by the Vatican. For me, truth must win out no matter what. I find most people who give negative reviews never even take the time to read up on the subject. It's the only way you will ever be satisfied with the results. I find this film riveting. It confirms everything I've read and more. Too bad the average person doesn't realize that even our government has fed us garbage throughout the centuries and have their own agenda. What a true eye opener they would experience. Then they would realize nothing is outrageous of what people will do for power.

Ridulous if competent attempt to catch the coat-tails of Da Vinci Code. This is plainly a hoax, fairly well-acted by the lead, the putative filmmaker. He's oh so skeptical - as evidenced by his repeated claims that he's skeptical. He's not a shameless exploiter of the stupid - no - he's Open Minded. He's a Maverick intellectual, no less. You don't need a PhD to make great archaeological discoveries, he insists. This, of course is true. And also, there is no license for making movies; any crackpot or fraudster can (and does) do it.

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.
