Martin Scorsese

Scorsese's new film premiering at Vatican is probably not a good sign

Martin Scorsese’s last cinematic exploration of religion, 1988’s The Last Temptation of Christ, did not go down well with conservative Christians, being attacked for its departures from the Bible and in particular a scene in which Christ has sex with Mary Magdalene. It was banned for several years in Greece, Turkey, Mexico, Chile and Argentina, and remains banned in the Philippines and Singapore.
