5-ALOONA (low.) AOVANCI THURSDAY, NOV. 10, 1966 Seen at the ALGONA By T, H. C. This being a rather quiet week, it might be timely to give some space to the Gospel According to St; Mathew, due at the local thea* tre Sunday thru Wednesday, Nov. 20 • 23. I haven't seen the film myself and .have never been top interested in the mere spectacular biblical features such as the current Bible or The Ten Commandments to name but a couple. This one seems a little different, '. according to time magazine. I quote "The Gospel According to St, Mathew is a modest, unadorned nioyie on the life of Chrfst that should satisfy the yearnings of anyone who h.as ever suffered thru the pretentious piety ?pf the multi-millibn : dollar orgies of scripturama." (Editor's note —- see what I mean?) The review continues "It casts a solemn, hot-eyed Spanish student (Enrique Irazoqui) and sends him out to preach among , the peasantry with a social rev olutionists' from Yet Pasolini (the director) at his best, has created something more noble and touching than a Marxist Mies siah, arid more authentic than ' the customary sun-kissed Holly wood Christ. The film's dialog for example, comes intact from the Book of Mathew." In conclusion "The strength of Pasolini's Gospel rests on those moments when he forgoes the static, .calendar-art conventions to fill the screen with direct, proyacative and eloquent glimpses of what a Biblical film might be." Sounds interesting, doesn't it'? ONE REVIEW of an Elvis Presley is as good as another — they follow identical .patterns — a'few songs — some swinging "chicks" and a touch of romance. But the 20 minute short of .New Zealand -was worth the price of admission.' Intelligently narrated, beautifully photographed in gorgeous Technicolor, this little master; piece, was a joy to behold. I be?-4 lieve this is one of .a series of * travelogue ' short subjects, designed to awaken interest-in travel in the various countries. As such, this particular film should be of interest to prospective .travelers to New Zealand. The favorable ratings given movie shows on TV^ gives rise to some speculation as to what medium is in competition; Are we staying home to watch mpv- ies. like The Music Man which many have seen on the motion picture screen or are we going to the movie theatres to see the new and current productions?! A good question.
