      I reckon Zeffirelli's Jesus of Nazareth comes closest, especially in
      Robert Powell's portrayal of Jesus. Powell never blinks and
      somehow that reminds me of John's Jesus. The Passion Narrative
      features several distinctly Johannine elements too. I can see what
      you mean about Last Temptation, but the portrayal of Jesus is
      surely the antithesis of John's Jesus, isn't it?
