The Last Temptation of Christ
Barred from U.S. cinemas and video stores across the country and banned in Turkey, Chile and the Philippines, Martin Scorsese’s 1988 Biblical drama “The Last Temptation of the Christ” is one of the most controversial films of all time. Directed by Scorsese and adapted from Nikos Kazantzakis’ novel by screenwriter Paul Schrader (who wrote Taxi Driver and Raging Bull for Scorsese during the ‘70s), the film depicts the life and death of Jesus Christ (played by Willem Dafoe) as the omnipotent Son of God – facing greater temptations than all of humanity because of his infinite powers.
