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 ...

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.

    Dubs ruin it

    What is this? Dubs? On HIS film? It wouldn't be so bad if you could change the audio track from English and use subtitles but English is the only audio track. I hate dubs as far as I'm concerned, whenever someone speaks the dub, its not the directors film any more. And it wouldn't be so bad if the dubbing wasn't so abrupt. And there's the problem with the menus. Of all the DVD players I tried this with, you cannot work the menus... you have to trick your way into watching the movie. Bad bad bad. But at least the cover is pretty. The film gets twenty billion stars. This DVD gets one star out of those twenty billion, only for its nice video quality.

    Greatest Story Ever Told. . . by Pasolini.

    I saw this film after viewing Pasolini's infamous Salo, and I tell you, it's suprising that he began this tame--well, not entirely. In Gospel, Pasolini takes the pespective of a Matthew-Marxism-prosubproletarianist (in a mouth-full), adapting a much-disputed yet much-honored classic tale with a twist. The tale (birth-life-death) of Christ has been tackled by many filmmakers; but not with the spare accuracy as this one. Pasolini's film is less controversial than it was at one time but some social classes may still be put off by the way Pasolini presents Christ and his Apostles. With that, The Gospel casts a lot of nonprofessional with few professional actors --a famous Pasolini speciality he called ''contamination.'' The actor playing Jesus looks more like a Spaniard (a likeness to actor Andy Garcia) than a Judean, and he has very few lines in the film; still his acting ability is nonetheless subtle and when he does speak his lines are purely artistic. Pasolini's own mother plays Mother Mary (hint, this is the same director who adapted Oedipus Rex) & has also been the subject of his literature and paintings. A superb film, hope it gets reissued again & again.
