King of kings by Nicholas Ray( Visual )

2 editions published between 1993 and 1999 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the Biblical epic that Time misrepresented as "I am a Teenage Jesus". In fact, the film reduces the conventional pieties of a Hollywood 'life of Christ' to a minimum. The script concentrates on speculation about the political context of Christ's ministry - Jewish rebellion against the power of Rome - with Barabbas as an early Zionist. The film achieves a sense of historical movement - people placed in relation to wider forces to a degree unusual in the genre. Ray and the second unit that filmed some of the action scenes effectively deploy the widescreen both for the dramatically enclosed scenes and those on a larger scale
