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

"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"

EW's 25 Most Controversial Movies (25 movies items)

"THE PLOT Jesus (Willem Dafoe) pursues his calling but, in a Satan-induced hallucination, dreams of a normal life that includes sex with Mary Magdalene. THE CONTROVERSY Religious fundamentalists picketed and threatened boycotts weeks before its release. One group offered to buy the $6.5 million film from Universal to destroy it; some theaters, and later Blockbuster, refused to carry it. Oh, and the French rioted."

Movie Reviews (part 6) (50 movies items)

" The Ups: Satisfying alternative version of the history of Christ seen from a more human aspect. It is controversial just to discuss Jesus as a person with his own drive force and not only as a vessel for God and it is satisfying to see a movie addressing this and make the story more accessible for unbelievers. Willem Dafoe does one of his more satisfying roles. Harvey Keitel is a great misjudged Judas. Great music from Peter Gabriel. The Downs: Too many established stars in supporting roles. "
