THE LAST TEMPTATION OF CHRIST, by Martin Scorsese (RAGING BULL), is a towering achievement. Though it initially engendered enormous controversy, the film can now be viewed as the remarkable, profoundly personal work of faith that it is. This fifteen-year labor of love, an adaptation of Nikos Kazantzakiss landmark novel that imagines an alternate fate for Jesus Christ, features outstanding performances by Willem Dafoe (ANTICHRIST), Barbara Hershey (HANNAH AND HER SISTERS), Harvey Keitel (MEAN STREETS), Harry Dean Stanton (PARIS, TEXAS), and David Bowie (THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH); bold cinematography by the great Michael Ballhaus (BROADCAST NEWS); and a transcendent score by Peter Gabriel.
