Capital Celluloid 2013 - Day 90: Sun Mar 31

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.'
Jonathan Rosenbaum 

Here is the trailer.
