The Gospel According to St. Matthew

The Gospel According to St. Matthew

Movie: The Gospel According to St. Matthew
Director: Pier Paolo Pasolini
Produced by: Arco Films, Lux Cie Cinematografique de France
Released By: Titanus Produzione
MPAA Rating:

Relating his facts in straight-on documentary fashion, Pier Paolo Pasolini’s 1964 Biblical film stars Enrique Irazoqui as Jesus. In it, Christ and his followers are depicted as gentle radicals working against the grain of the unjust Roman power structure. Typically offbeat Pasolini touches include having Satan disguise himself as a Catholic priest and the casting of the director’s own mother as the Virgin Mary. The music is selected from a variety of sources, from Bach to American spirituals. Il Vangelo Secondo Matteo was released in the U.S. as The Gospel According to St. Matthew — much to the discomfort of Pasolini, who didn’t want Matthew designated as a saint.
