Pier Paolo Pasolini: Poet and Provocateur
Il Vangelo Secondo Matteo
France, Italy | 1964 | Pier Paolo Pasolini
Probably the greatest life of Christ ever filmed! Pasolini turned exclusively to Matthew’s Gospel for this direct, unvarnished life of a radical, activist Jesus. It was shot in Italy in b&w with non-professional actors (including Pasolini’s mother). The magnificent music ranges from Bach to Billie Holiday. “Pasolini’s most satisfying movie.” –Time Out Film Guide.
