Criterions release of Scorseses The Last Temptation of Christ effectively presents both the films beauty and controversy. Produced on an extremely tight budget, The Last Temptation of Christ has a very epic feel that is wonderfully captured on this DVD. Though a few specks and scratches are apparent throughout the 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen presentation, the overall visual quality is quite sharp and vibrant. The newly mastered Dolby Digital 5.1 track is a phenomenal improvement noticeably enhancing ambient sounds, dialog and Peter Gabriels moving soundtrack. There are various added extras which really put the films content into perspective. The stellar commentary track includes director Martin Scorsese, star Willem Dafoe, screenwriter Paul Schrader and film critic Jay Cocks candidly discussing various aspects of the production; including the initial obstacles, extensive research, and notorious controversial elements. This is a great DVD for fans and an informative one for those who wish to see past its notoriety. --Rob Bracco --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Forget about the controversy surrounding this film. Yes, from a historical and Biblical perspective, it's trash. However, the real tragedy is the film itself. Read morePublished on July 12 2004 by zionred
