TV Guide
Powerful, haunting, and at times very moving, The Last Temptation of Christ presents its account of the events and conflicts of Christ's life with a depth of dramatized feeling and motivation that renders them freshly compelling.

The Onion (A.V. Club)

There is no reason to miss this film. Not everyone will like it, but at the very least it will let you see another perspective of the story of Christ. And even if you can't accept the story, you won't be able to deny the greatness of Scorsese's...
