Details

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, Pasolini's final, shocking film, Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom, based on the writings of the infamous Marquis De Sade.

Brutal and uncompromising, Pasolini's films have shocked and outraged audiences for decades, and their power remains undiminished to this day. Presented together for the first time, these six films stand as a testimony to his unique and untameable talents.
