The Pasolini collection brings together six controversial films by the legendary Italian filmmaker, including his bawdy 'Trilogy of Life' films (The Decameron, Canterbury Tales and Arabian Nights), all of which feature scores by the Academy Award winning composer Ennio Morricone.
Also included is Pasolini's brutal adaptation of Euripedes' Medea, starring opera sensation Maria Callas in her only film role, the scandalous modern drama Theorem, featuring a youthful Terence Stamp, and Pasolini's final, shocking film, Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom, based on the writings of the infamous Marquis De Sade.
These intense, shocking and often extreme films challenged audiences and critics upon their original release, and they continue to do so today. Pasolini's legacy can be felt in the raw and energetic cinema of independent filmmakers such as Miike Takashi (whose Visitor Q is a re-interpretation of Theorem) and Abel Ferrara (whose latest film explores Pasolini's final days, with Willem Dafoe (The Last Temptation of Christ) playing the great director).
