    Da 5 Bloods

    ★★½

    So bloated. Boring in large swathes. Sometimes aims for a Spielbergian grandeur but even then it doesn’t pull it off fully, always underplayed by some half-arsed quip. At its best when as a silly action film.

    The Gospel According to Matthew

    ★★★★½

    Was taken aback by the openness with which Pasolini approaches the source material and how he frames Christ with a less cynical Marx-ified eye that one would come to expect. It’s deeply involved in the spiritual nature of the text and with the way people attach themselves to leaders of a radical inclination. Visually stirring and patiently told, probably the best film I’ve seen (though admittedly not a great number) about Christ.
