What else here

What else me,
but You? 

Scorsese's The Last Temptation of Christ presents Willem Dafoe as a salt-of-the-Earth Messiah, equal parts human and divine. That film provides a touchstone for Jordan Jeffries' journey through morality and religion, the story of which is told here with introspective artistry.

Jordan Jeffries (b. 1985) is a cartoonist living in the Hudson Valley. His graphic memoir about five years of moviegoing, The Complete Matinee Junkie, was published by Birdcage Bottom Books. His other comics include Complex Machines, Just One of the Girls, and So Young.

Martin Scorsese (b. 1942) is one of America’s masters of filmmaking. He has directed over 25 feature films and is a crucial figure in the field of film restoration and preservation. Willem Dafoe (b. 1955) is an American actor with over 100 film credits; he is also one of the founders of the experimental theater company The Wooster Group. The Last Temptation of Christ (1988) is their first and, to date, only major collaboration.
