KING OF KINGS
SYNOPSIS DVD movie:
KING OF KINGS
One major film star referred to director Nicholas Ray as a "loser," because of Ray's alleged willingness to let his more temperamental actors walk all over him. Evidently, Ray had a very compliant and cooperative cast in King of Kings, inasmuch as the film emerged as one of the most disciplined Biblical epics ever made. Jeffrey Hunter is cast as Jesus Christ, delivering a wholly credible performance in this most taxing of roles. Siobhan McKenna is a radiant if somewhat overaged Mary; Hurd Hatfield offers a properly preening Pontius Pilate; Rip Torn portrays Judas more for the tragedy than the treachery; Robert Ryan (a personal favorite of Ray's) is one of the best John the Baptists you're ever likely to see; and Harry Guardino convincingly interprets Barabbas as a firebrand political extremist. The only false note in the casting is the MGM-dictated selection of teenaged Brigid Bazlen as Salome. The best aspect of the film is its handling of the days after the Resurrection; the "Jesus sightings" are offered as secondhand information, so as to retain some of the mystery inherent in the Scriptures. King of Kings was previously filmed in 1927 by Cecil B. DeMille, with a middle-aged H.B. Warner as Jesus.
SYNOPSIS DVD movie:
JESUS OF NAZARETH
Beginning before the Nativity and extending through the Crucifixion and Resurrection, this miniseries brings to life all the sweeping drama in the life of Jesus, as told by the Gospels.
Originally made for TV in 1977, this in-depth (six hours plus) version of Jesus' life is so thorough that the first hour is devoted solely to the story of his birth. The film doesn't skimp on some of the other landmark events of this famous story either. Director Franco Zeffirelli gives more than 12 minutes screen time each to the Last Supper and the Crucifixion. Passages of the Bible are quoted verbatim, the locations have a Palestine-like authenticity, and, aside from some of the principals (Robert Powell as Jesus, Olivia Hussey as Mary, and Stacy Keach as Barabbas), many of the non-Roman characters are actually played by Semitic-looking actors. Zeffirelli diligently provides the sociopolitical background that gave rise to Jesus' following and the crisis in belief it caused for the people of Israel (and one or two Romans). While not graphic by today's standards, some of the scenes--baby boys being ripped from their mothers' arms and slaughtered, nails being driven into Jesus' hands--may disturb young and/or sensitive children.
SINOPSIS de la película en DVD:
EL EVANGELIO SEGUN SAN MATEO
A partir del Evangelio de Mateo, escogido por Pier Paolo Pasolini por ser el que antepone el aspecto humano de Cristo al aspecto divino, el realizador filmó una apasionada y poética ilustración de la vida de Jesús, desde la anunciación a María hasta la resurrección y posteriores encuentros con quienes habían sido sus discípulos. Una película que sigue fascinando, además, por su asombrosa fotografía y su ecléctica banda sonora –Mozart, Bach, Prokofiev, Odetta, Misa Luba–, y que se presenta en su versión restaurada.
