About the Movie

Last Days in the Desert follows Jesus (Ewan McGregor) in an imagined chapter from his forty days of fasting and praying in the desert. On his way out of the wilderness, he struggles with the Devil, also played by McGregor, over the fate of an ordinary family in crisis, setting for himself a dramatic test with distinctly human conflicts.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: A quietly compelling portrait of the human side of Jesus, wrestling with his doubts while wandering through the Judean desert. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, May 12, 2016

Rotten: Ultimately "Last Days in the Desert" never quite hits its stride as either an art piece or a biblical variation. – Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times, May 13, 2016

Fresh: McGregor is actor enough to make all the open-to-interpretation interior drama compelling. As Jesus labors and listens, the suspense becomes not what he'll do next but what he's thinking and feeling. – Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice, May 10, 2016

Fresh: Last Days in the Desert is the most intelligent, engaging film about Jesus since The Last Temptation of Christ. – Andrew Lapin, NPR, May 12, 2016

Another blue-eyed British Jesus

Another blue-eyed British Jesus

2001: A Bible Odyssey

In some ways the film reminded me of Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey in that it was visually stunning, very little dialogue, and content that is deeper than face value. This film is not for the fundamentalist (i.e., someone who perceives things only at face value or literally). It is a contemplative film.

Very slow

Too slow a dull for somone non religeous I guess.
