Critic Reviews for He Who Must Die
Audience Reviews for He Who Must Die
I can't understand how I only heard of this movie because I was familiar with the novel on which it was based. It's a brilliant, beautifully crafted piece of work, a modern reimagining of the story of Christ as a revolutionary. I'm not totally sold on the way it eventually builds into a Marxist call for violent revolution, but man is it powerful, and, whether I ultimately agree with Dassin's take on Kazantzakis or not, I do think it's a valid interpretation of the Jesus story. Great writing, great direction, great black and white Cinemascope photography, great movie.
"I just realized, if Christ returned today, he would be crucified again... and you would be the one driving in the nails."
