Il vangelo secondo Matteo

Pier Paolo Pasolini France, 1964

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

And also The Gospel According to Karl Marx. Pasolini, a leftist and atheist, dips into mankind's most sacred writings with a highly suspicious selectivity, and extracts an image of Jesus Christ as a revolutionary, repainting the source material as "acquired" post-modern (f)art — Empty, no wonder it's one of the most acclaimed films of all time.
