Synopsis:
Written and directed by cult filmmaker Abel Ferrara, this dark, daring drama tells the story of the fateful final day of the controversial filmmaker Pier Paolo Pasolini. Having recently finished 'Salo', or '120 Days of Sodom', Pasolini has enraged audiences, critics and politicians with his outspoken views, overt sexuality and the scandal that surrounds his films. Focusing on both his private and professional life, Pasolini explores the inner world of the filmmaker in the hours leading up to his devastatingly brutal death.
Starring Willem Dafoe as the great auteur, and featuring Ninetto Davoli, who acted in many of Pasolini's films, Pasolini is a powerful and evocative look into the dark world of one of cinema's most controversial figures, as seen through the eyes of one of modern cinema's most astonishing and surprising directors.

gay porn - Pasolini review by AM

Spoiler Alert
12/02/2018

I switched this off very early on - ten minutes. It was unwatchably bad, but that ten minutes put me in mind of 9/12 weeks, re-filmed with a middle-aged man in the Kim Basinger role and a series of men in the Mickey Rourke role. If you like gay porn, this may the film for you, but if you don't, then avoid at all costs.

A very fine homage. - Pasolini review by JG

A very fine homage to the great Italian director by the equally talented Ferrara. Wonderful low light camera work and brilliant screen play based on meticulous research.

Avoids all the cliches this subject could have provoked. A poetic tribute.
