guardian.co.uk (Pier Paolo Pasolini, 1964, Eureka!, U)In 1962 Pier Paolo Pasolini received a suspended sentence for his allegedly blasphemous contribution to the portmanteau film Rogopag, a brilliant sketch satirising biblical movies. Two years later the gay, Marxist atheist showed the world how a life of Christ should be made, and it is a magnificent achievement, far superior to Scorsese's or Gibson's films.Shot in stark, grainy black and white on austere locations in impoverished southern Italy and based solely on St Matthew's gospel, it is neorealist in style but draws on 500 years of Christian art.
