With Mel Gibson's Passion getting so much talk right now my mind automatically went back to the Last Temptation of Christ... and it seems I am not the only one.
Bravo will air the Martin Scorsese epic "The Last Temptation of Christ" on Saturday, March 6 (8:00-11:30 p.m. ET). The film, originally released in 1988, provoked thought and debate all around the globe. In spite of this—or perhaps in part because of it—"The Last Temptation of Christ" earned an Oscar, Golden Globe and Grammy nomination.
"The Last Temptation of Christ" is based on the novel by Nikos Kazantzakis, and stars Willem Dafoe, Harvey Keitel, David Bowie, and Barbara Hershey, who was nominated for a Golden Globe for her performance as Mary Magdalene. It centers around the idea that Christ was given a choice between crucifixion and dying for the sins of humanity or living out his life as a human man, marrying and having children. The picture depicts controversial ideas, such as a love scene between Jesus and Mary Magdalene, a shifting role for Judas Iscariot and a Jesus who appears to have very human foibles.
After its initial release, the film was banned in Athens, Israel and India, and met with protests in North America and Europe. Among the harshest demonstrations was a cinema in Paris' Latin Quarter that was burned to the ground by Catholic extremists protesting the theater's showing of the movie. Though viewers raised objections against "The Last Temptation of Christ" for different reasons, the movie produced a similar media storm and dialogue as Mel Gibson's "The Passion of the Christ" has in recent weeks. Bravo's screening of the film, therefore, will provide the audience with an interesting opportunity to see one of the antecedents of "The Passion," while at the same time giving them a rounder perspective on how cinema has historically told this age-old tale.
