The Last Temptation of Christ (1988)

Bowie, as Pilate, interrogates a man he doesn’t believe is the Messiah, a miracle, the messenger of a kingdom not of this earth. He tells him: It doesn’t matter how you want to change things, we don’t want them changed. He’s less persecutor to Christ than mentor, one worn-out godhead to another. Things would get better.
