THE LAST TEMPTATION OF CHRIST
-- Martin Scorsese's most provocative film also turns out to be uncomfortably slow-paced and sluggish.
It was adapted by Paul Schrader from the book by Nikos Kazantzakis, and stars Willem Dafoe, Harvey Keitel and Barbara Hershey. 'The Last Temptation of Christ' focuses on the human Christ's struggle as he realizes his divinity. Scorsese, though master of the intensity of the struggle of the human spirit, seems to be overawed with the subject. Rated R.
