Because you've not seen it, Mel Gibson’s movie
The Passion of the Christ is basically a dramatisation of the 14 traditional Stations of the Cross.

I've never watched the Mel Gibson one- the Passion without the Resurrection misses the story of Christ completely
Throughout the movie, the characters have flashbacks that tell the story of Jesus’ ministry. That is an excellent technique, because the New Testament doesn’t give us enough narrative detail about anything other than the Passion to write a movie script.
The traditional 14 Stations of the Cross include events that are not in Scripture, but may very well have occurred. For example, the woman who wiped Jesus’ face with a cloth is known as St. Veronica. The incident is preserved in Christian legend but not in scripture.
No movie is perfect, but this movie does do a good job of making you feel that you somehow got to witness the actual event.
The movie does include the Resurrection, by the way. [source: kencollins.com]
