Cinema: The Last Temptation of Christ

Martin Scorsese chose to portray the human side of Christ in this imaginative - and at the time controversial - take on the historic Biblical narrative: Gritty realism, dusty landscapes and difficult moral questions carried by an all all-star cast - Daniel Defoe as Jesus, Harvey Keitel as Judas Iscariot and David Bowie as Pontius Pilate. 

"This is a respectful and complex work of fiction around the concepts of the biblical character and his life." Empire Magazine
