The Reviews for The Greatest Story Ever Told (1965) 1080p

For What It Is, It *Is* The GreatestReviewed byDanusha_Goska Save Send DeleteVote: 10/10

I love this movie, and I'd recommend it to anyone who is looking for an idiosyncratic, reverent, art film treatment of the life of Christ.

Is it fast moving? No, it is not. If you want "Robocop," this isn't your movie.

The slowness of this movie provides thoughtful people ample time to think about the history-shaping words being said, to soak up the beauty of the film itself.

Does Stevens attempt to recreate the sense one gets from looking at beautiful religious paintings? Yes. If you are one of those people who freeze frames beautiful shots, this is your movie.

Do big name stars appear in small roles? Yes. If that bothers you, you will have to *get over* your adolescent annoyance really to see what's happening.

The big name stars make a meta statement. Stevens was moved to make this film by his experience of being among the first to document what happened at Dachau.

Big name stars, like John Wayne, wanted to appear in even the tiniest of roles, because they sensed that Stevens was doing something special. If you can appreciate the big name cameos for what they are -- a community coming together to tell a story that matters to them -- they will enhance the movie for you, rather than lessen it.

Max von Sydow gives the best performance of Jesus ever committed to film. If he never did anything else, he could die proud because of the truth he embodied in this part.

Just the look on von Sydow's face in his first scene -- when he is being baptized by John -- a look that is caring, human, loving, confused, pained, as he begins to realize what his life holds in store for him -- is in itself marvelous, jewel-like in its purity, and unlike anything else I've ever seen an actor be able to do.

David McCallum is a complex, agonized Judas. He makes you feel for him. His death, as a sacrifice, is brilliant.

Charlton Heston captured the "take no prisoners" approach of the Biblical John the Baptist.

Donald Pleasance is the best Satan ever put on film. He's just an average, sort of nice guy who wants you to eat some food when you are hungry ... that's all. Harmless, really.

There are many scenes I would never want to have missed: the "lilies of the field" scene, John baptizing Jesus, Satan tempting Jesus in the wilderness, Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead, Jesus calling Matthew.

There are many effects that work perfectly for me: the handling of sound when Jesus is carrying his cross on the via dolorosa, for example.

So, no, *don't* see this movie if you require the speed of an MTV video in your movies.

Do see this movie if you want to see how one man, moved by Dachau, put years of his life into the service of a story he thought worth telling in a risky, idiosyncratic way.

Visual beauty but a very mediocre filmReviewed byghent1Vote: 7/10

The Oscar nominations received by this film in 1965 are telling. All five nominations are about costume, coloration and cinematography of the film. These are indeed stunning. But the rest of the film is mediocre at best. Max von Sydow is not at all a convincing Christ (his hairstyle's a disaster to begin with) quite by contrast to Robert Powell in "Jesus of Nazareth". Only in the Lazarus resurrection scene did I feel some of the Heart, the devotion, the passion, that must have been Jesus Christ. To that I can maybe add the scene where Jesus is clearing the temple at Passover. For the rest I could not get beyond the odd hairstyle. Von Sydow's very aristocratic and regal -was Christ an aristocratic character?- but not very divine. The rest of the cast does not work well either, to say the least. On top of that, many a scene feels unnatural and rigid. The film feels anecdotal and lacks true depth. Mr Stevens seemed to have been more preoccupied with the visuals than with screenplay, editing, character depth, casting and directing. At times the film looks like a Renaissance painting or a painting from the Romantic era. That delivers stunning visual joy -especially on my Pioneer Kuro with it's deep blacks- but not if it comes at such a huge cost. In all the piece strikes me as a visual feast but ultimately the film does not convince, especially compared to Zefirelli's Jesus of Nazareth which gets about everything right if you consider Mr Zefirelli's style and the era of his version's making. If you want to enjoy the beautiful cinematography, the colors, the scenery, do watch this film but I suggest you watch Zefirelli's depiction of Christ to get a deeper feeling for the Master, and Gibson's film if you want to grue at all the gore Christ must have gone through at the end of his mission.

Faithful depictionReviewed byMartianOctocretr5Vote: 8/10

The story of the events leading up to the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ, as written in the biblical gospels, has been committed to film many times; this version relates the story the best.

Unlike some other versions, which attempt to encompass far too much extraneous information (often about the Roman empire or people contemporary to Jesus), this movie directs its focus on Jesus and his teachings. We follow him and his disciples throughout his travels, and the highlights of his ministry, with many of the beatitudes and parables shown in context. Actions of Roman and Jewish leaders are addressed only to the extent that they were directly involved with Jesus.

This movie readily embraces the spiritual issues innate in this story, and presents Jesus's dual nature of humanity and deity. For example, Jesus encounters Satan himself, who appears, first as a tempter of Jesus, and later as a gleeful spectator as Jesus is beaten and finally killed.

There are many recognizable actors in the movie, and although it's fun to see this many familiar faces, it almost distracts from the storyline as you find yourself trying to identify an actor as you notice him/her appear in the crowd.

Max von Sydow does a splendid job as Jesus. He leads this all-star cast with a powerful yet sensitive Jesus. All lines are delivered with calm restraint yet also authority, and in his very eyes, von Sydow conveys the strength of his character. Most of the film itself is delivered in this strong yet understated way, except for two occasions where the music score accentuates the witness of two of the most famous miracles worked by Jesus.

A powerful and faithful depiction of the life of Jesus, recommended for anyone, regardless of their spiritual beliefs.
