Pier Paolo Pasolini: Poet and Provocateur

Pigsty

Porcile
France, Italy | 1969 | Pier Paolo Pasolini

Pigsty

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 all-star Euro-counterculture cast includes Jean-Pierre Léaud, filmmaker Marco Ferreri, Ugo Tognazzi, Pierre Clémenti, Franco Citti, Anne Wiazemsky, and Ninetto Davoli.
