The Gospel According to St. Matthew

MSRP: $19.95
Price: Special Pricing!

Manufacturer Part No: WBF4040
The birth, life, teachings and death on the cross of Jesus Christ presented almost as a cine-verite documentary.  Pasolini's second feature seemed a strange choice for such a revolutionary director, but it is an attempt to take Christ out of the opulent church and present his as an outcast Italian peasant.  Applying Neo-Realist methods, the director shot the film in Calabria, using the expresive faces of non-professionals including that of his mother as the Virgin Mary.  "The Gospel According to St. Matthew" is considered the greatest screen version of "the greatest story ever told" and this freshly remastered version brings the film to life in a way t hat has never been seen before.
