Il vangelo secondo Matteo

Pier Paolo Pasolini France, 1964

Stevie's rating of the film The Gospel According to St. Matthew

Beautiful black and white photography. You can really see Dreyer's influence on Pasolini with the use of close-ups. Extensively researched and amusing that one of the definitive movies about Jesus was made by Pasolini, a contradiction if there ever was one. Definitely my favourite Jesus too, marxist and revolutionary. Check.
