In the end, Last Days In The Desert feels like a wholly unnecessary aside during Jesus’ forty-days-and-forty-nights fasting episode, but deserves attention from patient, inquisitive viewers. Thank Ewan McGregor, as he pokes fun at himself in the most religiously ambiguous, sinfully tempting of ways. If you think your parents are bad listeners, just try having God as your father, who fiddles with inconsequential details like dew drops while you cry out for help. These are the trials and tribulations of Jesus Christ, who never let loneliness sway his desire to remain faithful.
