Russian Prosecutors to Probe Scorseses Film for Extremism

Martin Scorsese’s 1988 film The Last Temptation of Christ has fallen under the suspicion of extremism and can be banned in Russia.

      The Prosecutor’s Office is currently conducting "a psychological and linguistic probe of the film’s concepts.” The investigation was initiated at the request of Viktor Grin, deputy general prosecutor, who says the film “insults the feelings of millions of Christian believers and has a negative impact on public morals.”

      Russian Institute of Culturology has already checked the scandalous movie for signs of extremism, but did not find any evidences of anything illegal.

      The Last Temptation of Christ was repeatedly accused  of blasphemy and caused religious protests. It was banned in several countries, including Turkey, Mexico, Chile, Philippines and Argentina.

      In Russia the film already was in the middle of a scandal in 1997, when Russian NTV channel screened the film in spite of protests from the Russian Orthodox Church.
