Pier Paolo Pasolini was accused of being a Catholic Marxist by both his admirers and his critics. In this film Marxism and Catholicism do battle in the form of a talking crow and an itinerant priest. From the mouth of the crow Pasolini delivers such lines as "It's twilight, twilight for the great hopes." Pasolini hired the great Italian comedic actor Totò, the face of commercial Italian comedy, to play the role of the priest in this film. It was to be one of Totò's last performances, he died in Rome a year after the film's release. Although he described himself as a Catholic, Pasolini was more interested in what he referred to as the sacred, than in organized religion. In many of his films he questioned the nature of progress, very often romanticizing a primitive utopian past

I racconti di Canterbury( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in Italian and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A selection of stories from Chaucer's "The Canterbury Tales". Shot in England, it offers an earthy re-creation of the medieval era. From the story of a nobleman struck blind after marrying a much younger and promiscuous bride, to a climactic trip to a hell populated by friars and demons (surely one of the most outrageously conceived and realized sequences ever committed to film), this is a work of merry blasphemy, framed by Pasolini's portrayal of Chaucer himself

Trilogy of life( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in Italian and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the early 1970s, the great Italian poet, philosopher, and filmmaker Pier Paolo Pasolini brought to the screen a trio of masterpieces of premodern world literature -- Giovanni Boccaccio's The Decameron, Geoffrey Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales, and The Thousand and One Nights (often known as The Arabian Nights)-- and in doing so created his most uninhibited and extravagant work, which he titled his Trilogy of Life. In this brazen and bawdy triptych, the director set out to challenge consumer capitalism and celebrate the uncorrupted human body while commenting on contemporary sexual and religious mores and hypocrisies. His scatological humor and rough-hewn sensuality leave all modern standards of decency behind; these are physical, provocative, and wildly entertaining films. Includes bonus features
