I have seen, the best I recall, 2 Pasolini films, but I can't remember exactly which ones. The 2 were among The Decameron, Canterbury Tales and Arabian Nights. Pretty sure Arabian Nights is the one I haven't seen. I also have The Gospel According to St. Matthew and Saló but not sure when, or if, I will ever watch them, particularly Saló. One of these days I'll give him another try.

In order of merit:





1.Porcile (1969) ***

2.The Hawks and the Sparrows (1966) ***

3.The Gospel According to St. Matthew (1964) ***

4.Oedipus Rex (1967) ***

5.Teorema (1968) ***

6.Accattone (1961) ***

7.Mamma Roma (1962) ***

8.Medea (1969) **1/2

9.Ro.Go.Pa.G. (1963) (segment "Ricotta, La") **1/2

10.Arabian Nights (1974) **1/2

11.The Canterbury Tales (1972) **

12.Salo, or The 120 Days of Sodom (1975) *1/2





I also have THE DECAMERON (1971) on VHS and will pick up LOVE AND ANGER (1969) on DVD when it's released later on this year by No Shame; I'm also interested in catching some of his "portmanteau" segments which are sporadically shown on Italian TV.



Although I consider Pasolini to be an important film-maker, he's hardly one of my favorites; SALO`, then, is something I hope never to set eyes on again and, in a way, I'm relieved that I decided not to go to the Venice Film Festival this year since it's being shown therePosted Image; in fact, when I did go last year, I broke my own vow never to watch CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST (1979) again and I even spent half-an-hour (at around 03:00 a.m.) talking about the film with its director, Ruggero DeodatoPosted Image!!
