[Resources] Pontius Pilate Bowie

In Martin Scorsese's Last Temptation of Christ (1988), David Bowie plays Pontius Pilate.

Watch how he argues so eloquently.

"Say something. You had better say something." 

"It doesn't matter how you change things, we don't want them changed." 

"We have a space for you up on Golgotha. Three thousand skulls there by now, probably more. I do wish you people would go out and count them sometime. Maybe you'd learn a lesson. Oh, well. Probably not."

That is an awesome portrayal of a First Citizen of Rome. The gestures, the attitude. Use that for a game that has an empire on the decline, seeking to maintain the status quo.
