Making it in Aramaic may have been another conceit designed to mask the anti-Semitism.
Mel's Daddy is a mean-mouth anti-Semite (toward both Jews and Arabs, BOTH Semetic peoples) and I'm wondering if only the Hollywood connections keep Mel from the same.

The question is, what constitutes a controversial movie? How big should an affected audience be? Is it controversial because a large number of people are offended or because it tries to influence people in a wrong way, such as Birth of A Nation tried to do? It would be interesting to see the guide lines used by the list composers.
Fahrenheit 9/11 was a lot more controversial I think than TPoTC. It definitely offended a great number of folks and at the same time influenced another large number of folks.
