    Pasolini's Matthew for Just £5.99

    Just found out that Movie Mail Online, an excellent web / mail order based DVD company specialising in foreign, classic and lesser known movies are selling Pasolini's classic 1964 film Il Vangelo Secondo Matteo (Gospel According to St Matthew) for just £5.99 (about $10) for one week only. Such a bargain I feel duty bound to pass it on!

    Pasolini's film is probably the best Bible film ever made, and DVD Beaver rated it highly in their 5-way comparison of the various editions of this film on DVD (including French and German versions, although they missed out this one which is horrifically dubbed).

    Postage is free in the UK, and £1.50 ($2.50) to the rest of the world.
