CHILDREN’S FILM DOCU AND MARTIN SCORSESE’S “LAST TEMPTATION OF CHRIST”
4PM: DOCU - Marc Cousin’s A STORY OF CHILDREN AND FILM (2013, 106 min) is the world’s first movie about kids in global cinema. A story of children and film is an eye opener, and a celebration of both childhood and the movies professionals determined to help them kick their habit. 7PM: X-MAS DRAMA - A few decades before Hollywood started reaping every last bit of arable intellectual property, Martin Scorsese imagined a gritty reboot of Jesus Christ. In the LAST TEMPTATION OF CHRIST (1988, 164 min) - adapted, per a title card, from Nikos Kazantzakis’ novel and not the New Testament - Willem Dafoe dared to play the son of God as a mortal, and a flawed one at that.
