A French dissenter threw a molotov cocktail in one of the theaters during its exhibition. The criticisms leveled at the film, just like in the case of Mel Gibson’s The Passion of Christ (2004), indicate a certain risk for filmmakers, which could affect the articulation of the material. This paper takes a closer look at three significant ‘Jesus-films’: The Last Temptation of Christ (Scorsese, 1988); The Passion of Christ (Gibson 2004); and, Son of God (Spencer, 2014).
The differences between the three films reviewed in this paper are perhaps best articulated in the genres chosen by each of the directors. Scorsese’s work, which was an adaptation of Nikos Kazatzakis’ novel of the same title, would qualify as a Hollywood biopic, presenting a Christ tortured by God. In a way, this is not surprising because the director is known for these type of anti-heroes - those caught in the web of human failings, torn between their passion and beliefs (see, for instance Taxi Driver and Raging Bull). There was an objective: to resolve what it must have been like for Jesus as a human who was struggling with his divinity and his humanity. Throughout the film, Jesus was depicted as a Messiah who constantly questioned and doubted.

In the process, he had to break away from the traditional tone and setting of previous Jesus-films. For instance, in his depiction of one of the temptations, the devil was presented in a suit that somehow resembled a modern-day CEO or even a preaching evangelical. In addition, Scorsese also had to create scenes

Indian National Cinema. Cinema, since its evolution, has emerged as one of the most stimulating means of influencing the human race. Whether it provides entertainment or knowledge, or a combination of the two, motion pictures have grasped the attention of every individual regardless of race, culture, religion and language.
As long as the film history goes, it is safe to assume that motion pictures have had a high impact, good or bad, moral or immoral, on the minds of its audience. But as Hollywood perpetually hangs between morals policing and freedom of speech, there has been a constant conflict between the filmmakers and the rest of the world (religious groups, policy makers, traditionalists or mainstream media).
It involves designing a system and using a microcontroller to program it. The aims and objectives of the project included detecting motion, sending output signal from the controller to motor, making a prototype of the system, creating an understanding of how a motion sensor works, as well as learning how to program a microcontroller.
The Relationship between Painting, Photography, and Motion Picture
History paintings tell stories. These tales are of a particular type and expressed in a particular way. Their narratives have generally, but by all means always, sought some degree of historical believability.
These were initially converted churches and community halls, but with technological advances in photography, the movies attracted large numbers, which led to the construction of Picture Houses that were dedicated to showing Cinema.
A major question may arise here about what was the reason behind these films' success.
Chaney is depicted as being the most famous actor of the 1920s, perhaps due to the 10 grotesque movies he made with Ted Browning. However, Chaney is neglected both historically and by reviewers and scholars,
Additionally, restrictions enforced by the government on the movie industry were also serving to limit the growth of this industry. I feel that the arrival of television during such unfavorable conditions was enough to wipe out the industry totally; however,
His success in coming up with the technology was a result of him believing that he had the capability of transforming the human machine interface through combining the learnt algorithms with simple hardware. His close correlation with
