The Last Temptation of Christ: Understanding the Messiah

The Last Temptation of Christ really is an incredible and beautiful depiction of the life of Jesus. For someone like me who often feels lost among so much information about Jesus and Christianity, it is a great way to ground me. It helps me relate to the one person I should relate to out of everyone in the Christian tradition. It’s a beautiful film and perhaps the most important depiction of Christ on film. It is for me.

The Irishman: An Existential Mob Movie

The thing about Martin Scorsese is that a lot of his movies tend to feel similar to each other because they deal with similar kinds of people learning similar lessons. Goodfellas, Casino, The Departed, and even The Wolf of Wall Street to an extent all have similar messages. This isn’t to say they aren’t great movies – each of the four movies I just listed deserve at the very least four out of five stars – it’s just that when it looks like The Irishman is going to be more of the same, you can’t help but worry just a bit.
