Yeah, I just wanted to make sure. 40 dollars is not cheap for a DVD, but it looks like it's really worth having particularly because it's from Criterion.

Correction.  I mean to say "the film is NOT anti-God"

I'm trying to persuade a friend of mine to watch The Last Temptation of Christ but he won't because he doesn't AGREE with making a film about God even though his favourite film is The Mission (which has many deep, spiritual under-tones).  I explained to him that the film is anti-God, it's just a wise film that asks questions and doesn't presume anything--and I made him read the booklet that comes with the Criterion DVD which is like a review of the film.  Still won't watch it.  He wants to be a filmmaker and I've told him that this is SCORSESE!!  one of the best we'll ever see, you have to watch for the direction, the cinematography and the performances (especially of Willem Dafoe) which is one the best of all time.  Anyone have any ideas how I can persuade him to watch it?  Anybody have a review that I can send him so it'll persuade him to watch it???HELP!!!!


I have friends like this. It fucking depresses me to no end, as this film is most probably the best of its kind. Damn. Hit that fucker over the head and make him watch it!
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

DVD Planet charges S & H. Deep Discount DVD doesn't. The two prices would come out about equal. :(

Mexico gets delayed 'Temptation'

MEXICO CITY -- For the first time, moviegoers in this predominantly Catholic nation will have the opportunity to see "The Last Temptation of Christ" on the big screen, with the film falling on the same March release date of Mel Gibson's "The Passion of the Christ." Martin Scorsese's "Temptation," under distributor United International Pictures, will hit theaters nationwide March 26 with 71 copies, while the 20th Century Fox-distributed "Passion" will bow in Mexico the same day with more than 300 prints. UIP spokesman Pascual Hernandez said Monday that it "is strictly a coincidence" that the two films share a common release date. According to a UIP press statement, the Catholic Church in Mexico has pressured government censors to ban the screening of the controversial "Temptation" since 1988.

yes, pure coincidence that the film will open 16 years late on the same day as another controversial film about christs last days.  pure coincidence...

Bill O' Reilly was bitching about this, in support of the Passion, yesterday.

What a douchebag. :(

Well, I'm not surprised. This is the same guy who also called Kill Bill the most violent movie ever made.
