Not only an exquisitely revolting satire, it is also Pasolini's most fascinating piece of cinema.

This isn't one of Pasolini's greatest films, though it's possibly the one that today best shows the warp and woof of its period.

A difficult self-indulgent satire to enjoy.

Pasolini's freak-out is rigorously controlled, his political vaudeville is unsurpassable

Slipshod, disconnected, uninvolving, and utterly boring.

One of Pasolini's most enigmatic films.

Audience Reviews for Porcile (Pigpen) (Pigsty)

With Pigsty, Pasolini again exaggerates the Imagery/dialogue/performances, merges the contrast between the rich and the poor and shows us dark sides of humanity with a very knowing undertone of anti establishment, or at least, of Italian politics/Religious ideals of the time. Do we do wrong out of necessity/passion/obsession/perversion, does it all come very naturally to us or is evil and perversity man made, if so, is it because we enjoy them so much. A typically dark and grotesque comedy from Pasolini, another sacrifice in the name of art and rebellion. Society owes him a lot more than history lets on I believe.

2 allegorical stories make this a demi comedy by that legendary scholar/poet/post-modern inquisitor.Cannibalism,a series of totalitarian fragments,the director Marco Ferreri and cult avant-garde figure Anne Wiazemsky in guest roles,why...it's a nutcase!It's more than a superficial story however,faithful to a leftist idea of freedom and anarchy,Pasolini presents us caricatures in unorthodox angles and...carnivorous lusts!
