Critic Reviews for Pasolini
It may be only one man's version of what many have speculated about... but in its clear-eyed grittiness, it's also a tribute from a filmmaker for whom the night's temptations were ripe and its dangers legion.
Reluctantly takes its place in a cinema of admonition that turns human lives lived against oppressive opposition into simplistic warnings against having sex on the beach. The man deserves better.
One of the most intuitive and mysterious movie biographies made in a while.
Part hero worship, part true-crime tragedy and completely of a piece with its creator's obsessions over the spiritual and the sordid.
