THE LAST TEMPTATION OF CHRIST is a historical drama, from 1988, which interprets the last days of Jesus Christ.

Violence

During the crucifixion of Christ, it is strongly implied that nails are driven through Christ's hands, with sight of blood spurts upon impact. There are also several scenes in which Christ is beaten and whipped with bloody detail. The Crown of thorns is vigorously thrust on the head of Jesus Christ, resulting in bloody detail. There are also bloody stabbings.

Sex

Mary Magdalene is seen having sex with multiple men who lie on top of her and gently thrust into her. It is implied the men are paying for sex. During the sex scene, there is brief sight of breast and buttock nudity.

Nudity

Mary briefly exposes her breast to Jesus after he discovers her having sex with men. There is also natural full frontal male and female nudity which occurs within the context of a baptism.
