The Last Temptation of Christ

The Last Temptation of Christ ★★★★½

Although the film’s length can be felt, and it only becomes considerably challenging in its final act, Willem Dafoe delivers a gripping performance, and Scorsese presents us with an intriguing interpretation of Jesus as a flawed man—with its more human approach and astute exploration of his self-discovery and battle with faith and morality possibly holding more value than what is written in scripture.
