This is a highly ambitious, serious, and explorative film that in single scenes engages its material with a larger sense of wonder and reverence than the entirety of Mel Gibson's exploitive film ever could. In a disclaimer at the very onset of the film, Scorsese warns audiences that his film is not intended to be a retelling of one or any of the four gospels, but rather an artistic exploration of ... read more

Hmmm... naa sorry, Martin. Could've been better...

I had high expectations for this film because it is a film from Martin Scorsese and it is one of the few Scorsese films that is a non-crime film and has drama within it. This film disappointed me quite a bit. The best things about this film were that it did show how horrifying Jesus' crucifixion really was to endure and to witness. The disappointments for me were that it dragged on a bit and went ... read more

Wow! What a controversial film. I find it quite enlightening, and very spiritual. Most likely my favorite film based on Jesus Christ.

My temptation is for all who can to see this movie

“Willem Dafoe plays Jesus in a movie about Jesus' crucifixion. This movie has the right title! This movie covers the last temptation of Christ!

My temptation is for all who can to see this movie! (should be fine for mature teens 13 and up) 'The Last Temptation of Christ' is something that you'll need to watch all off to understand the ending.

Spoiler alert: This is a big spoiler! Go to the next paragraph if you don't want to know what happens or unless you've seen the movie;

When Jesus (Dafoe) is on the cross, he is tempted by a young girl who claims to be his guardian angel (Juliette Caton) and she takes him down from the cross” read more

I Recommend...(The Short List) (80 movies items)

" Biblical drama. Directed by Martin Scorsese. Stars Willem Dafoe, Harvey Keitel. Cameos by Harry Dean Stanton, Andre Gregory and David Bowie. Soundtrack by Peter Gabriel. It sounds like a made up movie. All of those people in a Jesus movie. It's crazy, but it's the best Jesus movie (Life of Brian aside) ever made. It was very controversial when it was released for very stupid reasons. Most Jesus movies focus on the divinity of Jesus or put a lot of emphasis on his sacrifice. Last Temptation "

A Complete review of Martin Scorsese's work (30 movies items)

" Cast : Willem Dafoe, Harvey Keitel, Barbara Hershey What was it about? The life of Jesus Christ, his journey through life as he faces the temptations that all humans face during their lives, and his final temptation upon the cross. My two cents: With 'Gangs of New York', it was another project Martin Scorsese struggled to make since the 70's. Even though I'm an atheist, I find religion fascinating and I thought it was a really interesting movie, especially the fact that Jesus was portr"

Movies Hollywood Was Afraid to Make (8 movies items)

"When Barbara Hershey slipped director Martin Scorsese a copy of Nikos Kazantakis’ controversial novel The Last Temptation of Christ on the set of their early film Boxcar Bertha, neither of them could have anticipated the sort of trouble she was starting. Scorsese, a devout Catholic and fan from boyhood of biblical epics, fell in love with the book and made it his passion project. He spent years trying to get it made, and the picture was green-lit by Paramount in 1983, with Aidan Quinn cast in "

"The Story: The carpenter Jesus of Nazareth, tormented by the temptations of demons, the guilt of making crosses for the Romans, pity for men and the world, and the constant call of God, sets out to find what God wills for him. But as his mission nears fulfillment, he must face the greatest temptation: the normal life of a good man. Based, not on the Gospels, but on Nikos Kazantzakis’ novel of the same name. The Controversy: Religious fundamentalists picketed and threatened boycotts weeks be"
