Monday, May 20 – 7:30 PM PIER PAOLO PASOLINI
THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO ST. MATTHEW (IL VANGELO SECONDO MATTEO), 1964, Compass, 137 min. Working from the perspective of “an unbeliever who has a nostalgia for a belief,” director Pier Paolo Pasolini shot this story of the life of Christ in a documentary style, which lends his spare imagery a power that few biblical spectaculars ever attain. Employing nonprofessional actors (Spanish economics student Enrique Irazoqui portrayed Jesus, a role for which Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg reportedly were considered) and dialogue drawn directly from Matthew’s text, the film effectively allies Jesus with the meek and poor in spirit, and his rejection of materialism was a theme Pasolini often championed. In Italian with English subtitles.
