Yay! You know I'm sold... That "Sometimes I feel like a motherless child" sequence gives me shivers just thinking about it.
I'd forgotten it was in your own top 100. Unbelievable. The daring of those music choices alone blew my mind, and, sorry to sound a bit unsophisticated here, but Enrique Irazoqui has got to be the most bad-ass Christ ever put on screen. I rented it; now I've just bought it, and I think I'll be doing it for the DVD book, so I can talk about how Pasolini conjures miracles in a cut and all that. But its power just seemed amazingly direct and complete to me, and I can't remember the last time I found a movie so electrifying and serene at the same time.
I've had this on my must-see pile for years. In fact, rather embarrassingly, the person I borrowed it off has actually died.
