The Gospel According To Matthew


Pier Paolo Pasolini's bible story

Although or maybe becuase he was an atheist, Pier Paolo Pasolini’s life of Christ is one of the most powerful biblical films ever made.

Using a cast of non-pro actors and dialogue drawn straight from Matthew’s gospel, Pasolini tells his story with unblinking simplicity, shooting documentary-style.

The miracles, meanwhile, are low-key. Pasolini’s is a Marxist Christ, angered by social injustice – but even so, the film was approved by the Vatican and given a screening in Notre Dame.
