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

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

The movie is a patchwork of the parables, the miracles, and the life and crucifixion of Christ. I completely agree with Leonard Maltin's that "this movie is thought-provoking deep felt drama." Indeed! It will make you think! For starters the ability to think was given by God himself, and that includes the ability to raise issues and metaphors. The movie quotes scriptures, literally. From the begin... read more

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

"Controversial it may be to some people but Martin Scorsese's movie about the life of Jesus is very well made. It states clearly at the start that it is not based on any of the Gospels, it's an interpretation of a 1953 novel by Nikos Kazantzakis. Scorsese has the courage to ask challenging questions about the pressures and doubts Jesus must have experienced as the appointed Messiah. Personally I didn't feel it was offensive in any shape or form. I thought Willem Defoe was spell binding as Jesus C"
