Pigsty (Pasolini, 1969): BFI Southbank, NFT1, 8.45pm
This film is screening as part of the Pier Paolo Pasolini season at the BFI Southbank. Full details here.
Chicago Reader review:
'Two contrasting and mutually reflecting and enhancing stories about
consumption. One, set in contemporary Germany and featuring Jean-Pierre
Leaud and Anne Wiazemsky (both dubbed into Italian), is about the son of
a former Nazi who forsakes his fiancee to have sex with pigs; the
other, set in the Middle Ages, features Pierre Clementi starving in the
desert and eventually resorting to cannibalism. This isn't one of
Pasolini's greatest films, though it's possibly the one that today best
shows the warp and woof of its period.'
Here is the trailer.
