The clip conversation about fear from The Last Temptation of Christ (1988) with Barry Miller, Willem Dafoe
First came the wings, then the angel.
His spirit actually appeared to you.
He treated you like a royal visitor.
He recognized you for something.
No, he couldn't have recognized me for anything.
I only came here to serve God. That's all.
That's all God wants from me. I'm sure of it.
But think of how you're blessed.
God actually makes himself known to you.
I don't know what God wants from me.
All my life I've wanted to hear God's voice.
I've dedicated my life to Him.
Sometimes... I think I feel Him, but I'm never really sure.
But you always know.
God took you by the hand and brought you here.
[ Laughs ] You think it's a blessing to know what God wants?
I'll tell you what He wants. He wants to push me over!
Can't He see what's inside of me?
All my sins?
We all sin.
Not my sins.
I'm a liar, a hypocrite. I'm afraid of everything.
I don't ever tell the truth. I don't have the courage.
When I see a woman, I blush and look away.
I want her, but I don't take her... for God.
And that makes me proud. And then my pride ruins Magdalene.
I don't steal, I don't fight and I don't kill.
Not because I don't want to, but because I'm afraid.
I want to rebel against you, against everything, again-- against God, but... I'm afraid.
You want to know who my mother and father are?
You want to know who my god is?
You look inside me, and that's all you'll find.
