The Last Temptation of Christ
Location: Redstone Theater
Dir. Martin Scorsese. 1989, 164 mins, 35mm. With Willem Dafoe, Barbara Hershey. Scorsese’s humanistic portrayal of Jesus Christ, based on the novel by Nikos Kazantzakis, was a labor of love that was delayed when Paramount stopped pre-production and was protested by religious groups when the film was finally completed. Dafoe convincingly portrays Jesus as a mortal undergoing an astonishing transformation, and Peter Gabriel’s score beautifully integrates ambient electronic tones with global music instrumentalism.
