Rashomon-style novels?

I read An Instance of the Fingerpost, which presents four narrators remembering one event, and loved it. I also love epistolary novels (oh, Dracula) for the same reason, but most of them don't quite play with narrator unreliability enough. What other Rashomon-style novels are there? Or, barring that, other dense, complex novels with one extremely unreliable narrator?

'Modern apocryphal' novels or movies?

Can you recommend any really good novels (or movies) that portray something in the Old or New Testament in a new way, or which add to the Old/New Testament, such that they could be considered 'modern Biblical apocrypha'? [more inside]
