The Last Temptation of Christ

1988 Rated R 2hr 44m

Nikos Kazantzakis's landmark novel comes to life in director Martin Scorsese's moving, spiritual and highly controversial film that challenges the Christian notion that Jesus (Willem Dafoe) was both a man and a divine being. With an all-star cast that includes Harvey Keitel, Barbara Hershey, Harry Dean Stanton and David Bowie, the film portrays Jesus as unmistakably human, susceptible to the desires, doubts and temptations that all men face.
