  • And I think he did this in a groundbreaking way in the early 1960s with films like the lovely neo-realist piece Mamma Roma and the majestic, original depiction of The Gospel according to St Matthew
  • It was Pasolini's debut film, and he shows an amazing understanding of the cinematic image here and makes his narrative and visual style as beautiful as a poem
  • I don't think it is quite as powerful as Mamma Roma he made a couple of years later, but still great

      Pier Paolo Pasolini was one of the most controversial filmmakers of his time, mostly for his extremely grotesque depiction of Marquis de Sades novel The 120 days of sodom, but also because he was openly homosexual which wasn’t fully accepted in

      Italy back then. Pasolini was murdered for mysterious reasons right after The 120 days of sodom was released.

      However, Pasolini didn’t only make grotesque films.

      He began as a promising young poet in the 1950s and later went over to cinema.

      He wanted to create a poetic style of film, thinking in the same way as he did with his poems.

      And I think he did this in a groundbreaking way in the early 1960s with films like the lovely neo-realist piece ...


      • Accattone  movie
      Mamma Roma and the majestic, original depiction of The Gospel according to St Matthew.

      Now, there’s some background information.

      Accattone is the tragic story about a young man who has to work as a pimp to survive.

      It was Pasolini’s debut

      film, and he shows an amazing understanding of the cinematic image here and makes his narrative and visual style as beautiful as a poem.

      I don’t think it is quite as powerful as Mamma Roma he made a couple of years later, but still great.
