Something Old, Something New: The Last Temptation of Christ / Lincoln

I knew I'd forgotten to link to something this week. Last Monday, my second Something Old, Something New piece went up, this time on the similarities that link Lincoln with another subversive, empathetic portrait of an abstracted icon, The Last Temptation of Christ. I'm quite happy with this piece, so I hope you read it. It can be found at Movie Mezzanine here.

  1. Very good - you are right about the parallels - interesting analogy - Matt Page recent post on his Bible Film Blog might interest you .. it is also about "Temptation"

    I thought that scene at the end of the movie with Keitel as Judas was great - "you idgit - that was the devil not an angel - get back up on the cross!"
