Based on the novel by Nikos Kazantzakis and starring Willem Dafoe, The Last Temptation of Christ is a visually breathtaking accomplishment that earned Martin Scorsese an Academy Award® nomination for Best Achievement in Directing, as well as Golden Globe® nominations for Barbara Hershey (Best Actress) and Peter Gabriel (Best Score). The epic tale also drew sharp criticism and controversy for humanizing Christ, to the point of depicting sexual desire. Critic Gene Siskel called it “The best film of 1988.” (2K DCP Presentation)
