The Last Temptation of Christ

Rated R • 163 minutes

Controversy surrounded the release of Martin Scorsese's reverent retelling of Jesus's last days, adapted by writer Paul Schrader from the acclaimed novel by Nikos Kazantzakis. Willem Dafoe embodies a provocative vision of Christ, a man of very human doubts and temptations, whose life becomes a battleground between the spirit and the flesh. Also starring Harvey Keitel, Barbara Hershey and David Bowie.
