  1. That should read Jesus of Montreal…
    One of my all-time favorites. Had me thinking, reflecting, marveling… The very simplicity of the story-line held me to the end – and what an ending. Unmissable…
    P S The writer director was invited down to Hollywood with a view to giving him a career in the movie industry – he stayed a while, then fled…

  2. Barabbas. Tonight’s film. An intense performance by Anthony Quinn. The summary above is wrong and quite misleading. Pilate gave in to mob rule. He wanted to release Jesus but caved in to the demands of a crowd egged on by the members of the Sanhedrin. “You are no friend of Caesar if you release this man…” Pilate induced no one – least of all, Barabbas.
