Description: 1991 was the year when the normally dominant Honda Marlboro McLaren squad received a shock! The Williams-Renaults, when reliable, were by far the most competitive vehicles in the Championship. Ayrton Senna thoroughly dominated the early races of the '91 Championship but it later developed into a tense-way war as Nigel Mansell clawed his Williams-Renault into contention. The FIA F1 Globe championship continues to be at the pinnacle of globe motorsport. The reason is clearly shown in this compilation packed with unseen movie material including interviews and on-board camera shots held back especially for you to enjoy.

Description: Stalags were pocket ebooks whose plots revealed lusty female SS officers sexually abusing camp prisoners. During the 1960s, parallel to the trial held vs Nazi fight criminal Adolf Eichmann, sales of this pornographic literature broke all records in Israel and hundreds of thousands of copies were sold at kiosks. The popularity of the Stalags only declined after a much-reported trial, in which their creators were accused of distributing anti-Semitic pornography.

Il vangelo secondo Matteo Reviews:

I gotta say, as a fresh IMDb player I search this zone to express one views a rather welcome find. Cathartic to tell the least. Certain movies haunt me. "The Gospel According to St Matthew" is one of them. The only possible explanation is the passion of its maker. Everything about it is so true that I remember the first time I saw it, I felt I had met Jesus. My relationship with Jesus had been torturous at best. Raised catholic by very catholic pre- Vatican Council parents. So, part of my rebellion had everytime been underlined by moving away from that pathology as far away as possible. Pasolini however, a Marxist homosexual, showed me a human side of the boy I was suppose to follow that made sense, that touched me. Enrique Irazoqui plays Jesus in a method that may explain everything. He is just a guy but in his eyes, in his eyes there is something I've never seen before. Compassion without fake undertones. It chilled me. I loved him. I wanted to follow him. Pasolini wasn't trying to sell me anything, he wasn't trying to convert anyone he was doing what an artist, a true artist does. He was sharing his vision with me, with us. When folks talk about film experiences, this is the movie that comes to my mind first. I'm glad to have to occasion to share this with you.


After reading all of the reviews listed prior to my entry I search it difficult to accept with how Pier Paolo Pasolini's sexuality or political views are even worth mentioning. What is worth mentioning is the wonderfully dramatic portrayal of the storyline of Jesus by amateur actors. The lack of so-called unique results is not something that even crossed my mind when viewing this movie. The artistic mixture of poetic verse from the Fresh Testament combined with pretty vistas and believable characters bring the storyline of Jesus to life on a private level.Pasolini's Biblical adaptation of the Gospel of Matthew far surpasses show day films of this category in its overall result on the viewer. The true substance of the film, the storyline of Jesus, is not glossed over with large budget extras, professional actors, and unique results which only seem to overshadow the awe inspiring wisdom of the words spoken by Jesus in the Fresh Testament.The fact that the actors are of Mediterranean decent only serves to create the movie more believable. The costumes and settings appear to be more realistic than the Hollywood versions that I have seen in another Biblical films. The Jewish Church leaders with their alien looking hats present how detached and imposing these figures gotta have appeared to the common folks of the time of Jesus. When Jesus threatens their positions of power by bringing God directly to the folks without need of a temple or an interpreter it sheds light on how these leaders felt threatened by a "poor son of a carpenter".Most movies of this category focus more on the Romans oppression of Jesus without showing the betrayal by the Jewish leaders that led to the unjust crucifixion of Jesus.I highly suggest this movie to anyone who has become bored with seeing the storyline of Jesus on film. If you think that you have seen it all and do not wish to sit through yet other trumped up ver of the storyline of Jesus then I recommend that you view this movie, for it succeeds where all others have failed.


Well, maybe there is, but I've never caught a glimpse of it. Most films about him are fundamentally wrong. In a religion which has fully turned its back on the line "it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich boy to receive into the kingdom of Heaven" (in fact, I am surprised that some pope or another did not officially removed that line from the Bible; be sure that this movie retains it and has it come right out of the mouth of Jesus Christ, who, I assume, was its speaker in the Bible), films about Jesus are generally overproduced messes that do nothing but retell the storyline with much less result than the Bible itself has. Even Martin Scorsese's ver of the story, The Last Temptation of Christ, suffers from this. Although, despite its flaws, it has a lot more power than most movies about these same events.I do not understand why Pier Paolo Pasolini, who was a Marxist, a homosexual, and an atheist, made this film. But, despite his reason, it has turned out to be a nice masterpiece. No one has ever attempted to set the storyline in its proper setting, at least not to my knowledge. The characters here are certainly semitic and Middle Eastern, unlike the entirely Anglo-Saxon casts of each another Jesus movie or even any another religious film. Also, the cast, made up of unprofessional actors including Pasolini's own mother as the elder Mary, has not one pretty face amongst it, except for maybe the actress who plays the younger Mary; she is quite beautiful. These faces and bodies are real: unattractive, harsh and worn. Teeth are not straight and white, but crooked and discolored as they certainly would have been before dentists were around. Clothing is not beautifully colored, but plain and tattered. Only the richest folks should afford dye for clothing. Pasolini has also forsaken the traditional look of Jesus Christ. While the facial hair remains similar, although maybe lessened, the long hair is dropped in favor for shorter hair, which is the method that folks wore it at the time. The photo of the long-haired Jesus is a situation of syncresis, that is, the mixing of religions; that photo was adopted from the ancient Greek depictions of Bacchus, the god of wine.What effects is an acc as straighforward as can possibly exist. With Pasolini's own private convictions, the audience does not have to feel like they are being preached at. Christians, unless they are so foolish as to trust that Jesus WAS an Anglo-Saxon, could be moved to tears. Nonbelievers (anyway, those who appreciate film) will reel at the marvelous test of classical melody (including, strangely enough, Prokofiev's melody from Eisenstein's Alexander Nevsky), the greatness of the actors, especially the boy who plays Christ (I've heard that he was a Marxist truck driver), and the pretty simplicity of Pasolini's direction, sort of a excellent mix between Italian Neorealism and French Fresh Wave. I myself, a staunch atheist, found it very powerful. 10/10.
