Removed from the controversy that attended its premiere, this 15-year labor of love emerges as one of Martin Scorsese's most personal and thoughtful films. This adaptation of Nikos Kazantzakis's modern classic views Christ as "God made man," with the emphasis very much on the human side, as Willem Defoe's Jesus wrestles with doubts and even considers sacrificing his divine calling in the name of earthly comforts. Michael Ballhaus's cinematography and Peter Gabriel's acclaimed score create an otherworldlyexperience. All-star cast features Harvey Keitel, Barbara Hershey, Harry Dean Stanton and David Bowie. Includes filmmakers' commentary, interviews, research materials, more.
