Il vangelo secondo Matteo 1965

Critics score:
94 / 100

Reviews provided by RottenTomatoes

Bosley Crowther, New York Times: The consequence is a crescendo of excitement and involvement with the fervor and passion of Jesus and an accumulating sense of the irony and tragedy of Jesus' suffering, in historical as well as spiritual terms. Read more

Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader: This highly political interpretation of the passion is as scandalous in its own way as Mel Gibson's but more poetic, more contemporary in its impact, and more serious in its overall morality. Read more

Don Druker, Chicago Reader: Pasolini uses a complex but seemingly stark and simple visual style, and he evokes wonderful performances from nonprofessionals Enrique Irazoqui, Margherita Caruso, and Marcello Morante. Read more

Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times: Tells the life of Christ as if a documentarian on a low budget had been following him from birth. Read more

Geoff Andrew, Time Out: Certainly Pasolini's most satisfying movie. Read more
