Item Description...
About this title: Adapted by Philip Dunne from the novel by Irving Stone, The Agony and the Ecstacy is the story of the 16th century war of wills between Renaissance artist Michelangelo (Charlton Heston) and "warrior pope" Julius II (Rex Harrison). Commissioned to paint a religious fresco on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, the independent-minded Michelangelo balks at the assignment. He is virtually strongarmed into accepting the job by Pope Julius, who wants to leave something for future generations to remember him by. Director Carol Reed deftly juggles screen time between the Pope's activities on the

pretty pictures, just turn off the audio  Mar 29, 2007
charlton heston is a heterosexual michelangelo, and rex harrison is a warrior pope in this verrrry loooong telling of the spiritual struggle between the artist and the patron responsible for the creation of the sistine chapel. nice to look at, but an hour-long documentary on the discovery channel would be easier to take.
Paint and Conquer  Mar 6, 2007
(3 1/2's) One would think that Rex Harrison and Charlton Heston on screen would bring about an incredible chemistry. However, like the Sistine Chapel, it takes time. With a sweeping grandeur that is matched by the awesome cinematography, 'The Agony and the Ecstacy' gives us magnificent views. It also presents the volatile relationship between Pope Julius II (Harrison) and Michelangelo (Heston). Their sparring is a matter of wills by two steadfast men who only know how to do things their own way. Of course, Julius is the pope. He's a warrior who wishes to reclaim the Papal States and bring Christendom to a more glorified stature. The French, among others, don't agree. They wish to dethrone their "anti-pope" in battle. Michaelangelo, who is too perfectionist to consider himself an interior decorator, makes the Sistine Chapel his own battleground. He's up to the task of painting it, even if he is reluctant to leave sculpting, his true passion.

Although the battle and painting scenes contain much splendor, at times the movie is plodding. At the beginning, we are given an art history lesson: One that spills into the starting dialogue. Much of the tension of the plot depends on the two combatants. Often the right combination mixes well, and it works effectively. Sometimes, it's only paint-by-numbers. (Based on a novel by Irving Stone)
Huge movie epic - they don't make 'em like this any more...  Feb 22, 2007
One of the classics from the '60s.
DVD The Agony and the Ecstacy  Jan 15, 2007
Boring. I watched on about 30 minutes. The actors were given wooden lines and recited them woodenly.
The book was at least an imaginative attempt to create an interestingy story of Michelangelo's life. The movie
lacked any feeling for the time or people
As good now as when it was made.  Jan 11, 2007
As a painter I find this picture a classic and an inspiration to the spirit.

This DVD thankfully includes the original prologue which documents the life's work of Michelangelo Buonarroti. The screenplay concentrates on the battle of wills between Michelangelo (played by Charlton Heston) and Pope Julius (Rex Harrison) and tells the tale of people behind the painting of the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. It also illustrates the turbulent age in which this work was done.

There's been times, when involved in a painting, I have invoked the line in this film, "When the wine is no good, you throw it out", while making drastic changes to, or entirely painting over, a composition.

This is a wonderful film and I recommend it to everyone.
