Pasolini uses a complex but seemingly stark and simple visual style, and he evokes wonderful performances from nonprofessionals Enrique Irazoqui, Margherita Caruso, and Marcello Morante.
This highly political interpretation of the passion is as scandalous in its own way as Mel Gibson's but more poetic, more contemporary in its impact, and more serious in its overall morality.
Certainly Pasolini's most satisfying movie.
The consequence is a crescendo of excitement and involvement with the fervor and passion of Jesus and an accumulating sense of the irony and tragedy of Jesus' suffering, in historical as well as spiritual terms.
Tells the life of Christ as if a documentarian on a low budget had been following him from birth.
[VIDEO ESSAY] This film seems to say that religious doctrine has worked as long as it has because its poetry is so beautiful. It also allows for the passing of generations who will eventually reject all religion because it is ultimately a lie.
At once primeval and immediate
Cinema's most impressive biblical movie to date.
Superb in every way, and possibly the film-maker's best.
A fierce magnesium flame of a movie.
Pasolini, a gay atheist Marxist, has made one of the most intriguing films about Jesus, cast with unknowns and shot in documentary style.
Definitely one for multiple viewings, and arguably up there with Pasolini's best.
Pasolini seems to assume that everyone knows the story by heart and therefore glosses over some passages making it feel too eventful; even so, there is an astonishing baroque intensity in what we witness here, as though he traveled in time with a camera to register those epic moments.
the most beautiful gospel film i have seen...made by an openly gay communist and dedicated to the pope. amazing faces!
The controversial Pier Paolo Pasolini retells the life of Jesus Christ in a much more honest way than many of the "socially accepted" filmmakers who tried to do the same. Told in neorrealist key, without embellishment nor grandiloquence, and that's where the beauty and the greatness of the film comes, from its natural feel and simplicity.
Best film about Jesus- bar none.
