One of the highlights of the recent Movies and Meaning Film Festival was the advance screening of a new Jesus film, Last Days in the Desert, written and directed by Rodrigo Garcia, who was at the festival for a Q&A.
My review of the film can be found at Third Way Cafe: http://thirdway.com/last-days-in-the-desert/
Last Days in the Desert had a number of flaws, including the dialogue, which could have been more creative and insightful, given the material, but it's the best Jesus film since Scorsese's The Last Temptation of Christ, so don't miss it. A solid ***+. My mug is up.
