The Gospel According to Matthew


Date Added: 2nd February 2020


Pasolini's reverential masterpiece, dedicated to Pope John XXIII, was praised by the Vatican as "the best film about Jesus ever made in the history of cinema". The Director's more personal interest in the story is evident in his portrayal of Jesus as a political revolutionary: He begins teaching, primarily using parables. He attracts disciples, and he's stern, brusque, and demanding.
