This article analyses presentations of violence in relation to historically specific regimes of truth. It suggests that Mel Gibson's film provides for an easy slippage between different orders of violence and truth, creating the possibility for the tortured body denuded of any relation to truth, to appear as sacrifice.

Hierdie artikel analiseer voorstellings van geweld met betrekking tot histories spesifieke regimes van waarheid. Dit suggereer dat Mel Gibson se film voorsiening maak vir 'n maklike verskuiwing tussen die verskillende ordes van geweld en waarheid, wat die moontlikheid skep dat die gefolterde liggaam, ontbloot van enige verband met die werklikheid, as slagoffer voorkom.
