1988. USA. Dir. Martin Scorsese. With Willem Dafoe, Harvey Keitel. 164 min.
Well before Mel’s PASSION-ate snuff film, Marty hit the Mean Streets of Jerusalem with bold cinematic spiritualism. A haunting exploration of Christ’s interior struggle between divinity and the weakness of his flesh, this controversial religious work stands as a visual testament to the beauty, the challenge, and the ultimate triumph of the transcendent.
