Il Vangelo Secondo Matteo (The Gospel According to St. Matthew) Reviews

October 23, 2007
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.
