Martin Scorsese‘s The Last Temptation of Christ is now available for free viewing on Hulu . While I don’t recommend that you watch the two hours and 43 minute movie on your computer, the option is now available to you. Scorsese’s account of the life of Jesus Christ is based on the controversial 1960 novel of the same name. The film departs from the commonly-accepted Biblical portrayal of Jesus’ life, and depicts him as a man who was still subject to every form of temptation that humans face. The movie was shot on a small budget of $7 million over the course of 58 days in Morocco. I have embedded the movie after the jump. Feel free to discuss the film in the comments below.
