Pier Paolo Pasolini: Poet and Provocateur

Pigsty

France, Italy | 1969 | Pier Paolo Pasolini

According to The Time Out Film Guide, Pigsty “is not only an exquisitely revolting satire, it is also Pasolini’s most fascinating piece of cinema.” A kind of warm-up for his even more unsavory Salò, Pigsty tells two outré stories about consumption. One, set during the Middle Ages, follows a cannibalistic bandit; the other, set during Germany’s post-WWII “economic miracle,” focuses on the affluent son of an ex-Nazi industrialist who grows unnaturally enamored of pigs. The...

The Broken Circle Breakdown

Belgium, Netherlands | 2012 | Felix Van Groeningen

This Belgian bluegrass (!) movie was nominated for five 2013 European Film Awards (the most nominations for any movie this year) including Best Film, Director, Actress (Veerle Baetens, who won), Actor, and Screenplay. It is also Belgium's official entry for this year's foreign film Oscar. The movie chronicles the love affair between a female tattoo artist and a Belgian banjo player, and the child who changes and challenges their relationship. Includes superb performances of traditional...

Mr. Nobody

Belgium, Canada, France, Germany | 2009 | Jaco Van Dormael

A cult classic in the making, Mr. Nobody won Magritte Awards (Belgian Oscars) for Best Film and Best Director and the...

Pier Paolo Pasolini: Poet and Provocateur

Medea

France, Italy | 1969 | Pier Paolo Pasolini

Legendary opera diva Maria Callas makes her only screen appearance in Pasolini's “primitive” version of Euripides' tragedy. Callas proves an imposing, imperious presence as the "barbarian" sorceress who becomes Jason's wife, then wreaks terrible revenge when he betrays her.

6:30 pm

Drug War

China, Hong Kong | 2012 | Johnnie To

The new nail biter by HK crime movie master Johnnie To—about a captured drug lord who helps a narcotics cop pursue an even bigger fish—was one of the best reviewed movies of 2013: "the best Hong Kong action movie since Infernal Affairs" (San Francisco Chronicle); "close to greatness" (Time Out New York); "arguably [To's] best film" (Village Voice).

8:40 pm

Beyond Outrage aka Outrage Beyond

Japan | 2012 | Takeshi Kitano

Actor-director Beat Takeshi's funny-violent sequel to his 2010 yakuza thriller Outrage chronicles a nationwide war between two rival Japanese gangs that is ignited by an all-out police crackdown on organized crime. Voted third best Japanese film of 2012 by the Japanese movie magazine Kinema Junpo.

Centro Histórico

Portugal | 2012 | Pedro Costa, Victor Erice, Aki Kaurismäki, Manoel de Oliveira

Portugal, 2012, Four of Europe's greatest filmmakers contribute segments to this portmanteau film about the northern Portuguese city of Guimarães, 2012 European Cultural Capital. Aki Kaurismäki tells a typically droll tale of a sad sack cafe owner. Pedro Costa revisits Portugal's colonial past. Victor Erice looks at the city's age-old but fast-vanishing textile industry. And Manoel de Oliveira (now 105 and still directing movies!) focuses on a group of picture-taking tourists.

Pier Paolo Pasolini: Poet and Provocateur

Notes For An African Orestes

Italy | 1970 | Pier Paolo Pasolini

Pasolini's documentary captures his preparations for an Africa-set film version of the Ancient Greek play Orestes (about a man who kills his mother). Though the movie was never made, the documentary survives as a fascinating time capsule of 1970 Africa and as a portrait of Pasolini himself. With jazz great Gato Barbieri. "Key to an understanding of the particular Freudian-Marxist-Christian worldview that was Pasolini's." -J. Hoberman.

Pier Paolo Pasolini: Poet and Provocateur

The Decameron

France, Italy, West Germany | 1971 | Pier Paolo Pasolini

Giovanni Boccaccio's ribald medieval tales of love, lust, sex, deceit, malefaction, and murder are rollickingly, bawdily brought to the screen in the first part of Pier Paolo Pasolini's "Trilogy of Life" (three adults-only films based on three celebrated story cycles). Franco Citti, Ninetto Davoli, and Pasolini himself star. Music by Ennio Morricone. The trilogy continues with The Canterbury Tales and Arabian Nights on the next two Sundays.

50th Anniversary!

The Umbrellas of Cherbourg

France, West Germany | 1964 | Jacques Demy

Our Valentine’s Day presentation! A French shopgirl (Catherine Deneuve, luminous) loves a mechanic but marries another man in Jacques Demy's groundbreaking, all-singing musical—a romantic, candy-colored concoction with a bittersweet aftertaste.

8:35 pm

The End of Time

Canada, Switzerland | 2012 | Peter Mettler

This enthralling, transcendental new essay film traverses the globe to explore the nature of time. Moving from the giant particle accelerator outside Geneva to the lava flows of Hawaii, from decaying Detroit to the tree where Buddha found enlightenment, filmmaker Peter Mettler limns the links between destruction and renewal, mysticism and modern science. “[Recalls] the work of Terrence Malick, Werner Herzog and the late Chris Marker…Immersive and hypnotic…A ravishingly beautiful experience.” –Hollywood Reporter.

Pier Paolo Pasolini: Poet and Provocateur

La Ricotta

France, Italy | 1963 | Pier Paolo Pasolini

Originally included in the four-part anthology film Ro.Go.Pa.G. (with segments directed by ROssellini, GOdard, PAsolini, and Gregoretti), this 35-min. movie is one of Pasolini’s key works. A funny but scabrous attack on institutional Christianity, the film was seized by authorities for “insulting the religion of the state” and Pasolini spent four months in prison for making it. Orson Welles stars in the movie (the title refers to ricotta cheese), playing a pompous film director shooting...

The Rape of Europa

United States | 2006 | Richard Berge, Bonni Cohen, Nicole Newnham

Co-produced by Robert Edsel (who wrote the book The Monuments Men that inspired George Clooney’s new film), this superb documentary traces the fate of European art treasures that were systematically looted by the Nazis during WWII and, in many cases, rescued and preserved by heroic museum directors, curators, and art historians. The film also serves as a superbly succinct history of the war in Europe, for those too young to know anything about the epic...

Pier Paolo Pasolini: Poet and Provocateur

The Witches

France, Italy | 1966 | Mauro Bolognini, Vittorio De Sica, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Franco Rossi, Luchi

Five major Italian filmmakers—including Pasolini, De Sica, and Visconti—contribute segments to this five-part rarity that does not deal with witches of the supernatural variety. Silvana Mangano stars in all five episodes, playing everything from a famous movie star to an unhelpful good Samaritan. She is supported in individual stories by other famous actors: Alberto Sordi, Totò, and even a very young Clint Eastwood! Pasolini’s amusing 30-min. segment, The Earth as Seen from the Moon (La...

The Canterbury Tales

France, Italy | 1972 | Pier Paolo Pasolini

The second part of Pasolini's sexy, scatological, slapstick-laden "Trilogy of Life" (see 2/9 at 4pm) finds an all-star cast (Pasolini, Franco Citti, Laua Betti, Hugh Griffith, Tom Baker, et al.) bringing some of Chaucer's randy tales of horny students, willing wives, and clueless old men to exuberant life. The director takes liberties with some stories. Music by Ennio Morricone. No one under 18 admitted!

Men Don't Leave

United States | 1990 | Paul Brickman

Charles Korsmo is a law professor at Case Western Reserve University. But before he became a lawyer and teacher, he was Charlie Korsmo, a very successful child actor in a number of high profile Hollywood films—Dick Tracy (second-billed to Warren Beatty as the “Kid”), Hook (playing Jack “Jackie” Banning), What About Bob?, et al. Tonight Korsmo appears in person to answer audience questions about his short-lived screen career—and his decision to leave acting—after a screening...

Pier Paolo Pasolini: Poet and Provocateur

Salò, or The 120 Days of Sodom

France, Italy | 1975 | Pier Paolo Pasolini

Pasolini's notorious final film (made before his brutal 1975 murder) is one of the most controversial, revolting, and disturbing movies ever made. Transposing the Marquis de Sade's 1785 novel to Mussolini's Italy, the film is set at a palatial villa where beautiful young people are humiliated, abused, and tortured by sadistic and powerful members of the upper class. Intended as a parable about fascism, it's an explicit, dispiriting downer and remains banned in several countries...

The final part of Pasolini's "Trilogy of Life" (see 2/9 at 4pm) is the longest and most intricate. Filmed in Yemen, Eritrea, Iran, and Nepal, this opulent work follows a young man as he searches for his beloved slave girl who has been kidnapped. But this main narrative is dissected and amplified by a series of other erotic tales. With Ninetto Davoli and Franco Citti; music by Ennio Morricone. No one under 18 admitted!
