The gospel according to St. Matthew by Pier Paolo Pasolini ( Visual )
63 editions published between 1964 and 2007 in 6 languages and held by 818 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The film, which won a Special Jury Prize at the 1964 Venice Film Festival, is different from other cinematic depictions of the life of Christ in that there is no screenplay per se. Pasolini limited himself to the account by Matthew: only words written by the Saint are employed; no additional dialogue was written and only scenes described by Matthew are shown. Pasolini used no professional actors (his mother plays the older Mary) and he dedicated his film "to the dear familiar memory of John XXIII."

38 editions published between 1975 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the titles, Pasolini informs viewers that it is "1944-45 nell' Italia Settentrionale durante l'occupazione nazifascista [in Northern Italy during the Nazi-Fascist occupation]." That, along with the "Bibliografia essenziale" that precedes it, indicates that a political meaning, dealing with the corruption of absolute power, was uppermost in the filmmakers mind. Motives aside, Pasolini's interpretation of the Marquis de Sade's eighteenth century opus of torture and degradation remains banned in many countries, is deemed one of the most disturbing films ever made, and is still-- 30 years after its initial release-- notorious and controversial
