David Bowie as Pontius Pilate in THE LAST TEMPTATION OF CHRIST

From the back, that's Willem Dafoe as Jesus. This film tried to do things differently from the typical  Biblical epics and upon its release it was really controvertial but the brouhaha is mostly forgotten today. It's good but not great film. David, who moonlighted as actor, recently passed away. This was basically his only "PEPLUM" film. His role basically amounted to a cameo. The frustrating thing about this scene is that we never see both actors' faces in the same shot.
