Whoever Says the Truth Shall Die (Wie de Waarheid Zegt Moet Dood) (1981)

My Rating

Movie Info

Whoever Says the Truth Shall Die is a naked-truth documentary on the life and work of Italian filmmaker Pier Paolo Pasolini (1922-1975). Using still pictures, excerpts from such Pasolini efforts as The Gospel According to St. Mathew, and extensive interviews, director Philo Bregstein charts Pasolini's matriculation into one of the most controversial cinematic figures in the world. Anti-fascist, pro-Communist, homosexual, "blasphemer"-all these were Pasolini, and much much more besides. Pasolini

Philo Bregstein directed this brief, interesting documentary about the life, career and untimely death of Italian poet, journalist, writer and filmmaker.

A provocative title befitting its provocative subject.

Pasolini, the decadent anti-fascist, pro-communist, homosexual artist, is a key figure in trying to come to grips with modern Italy and its many passions.

Audience Reviews for Whoever Says the Truth Shall Die (Wie de Waarheid Zegt Moet Dood)

This is not an autobiography or film tribute of the great Provacateur, Pier Paolo Pasolini, but does provide rare glimpses of the man. Archival footage of Pasolini, his films, poetry readings, and interviews with his friends are what this short documentary offers. Pasolini was always a controversial and critical figure in Italy, so any political group would have fared better if he were deceased. Inflamatory indictments of the Christian Democrats, and his film, Salo, were released about a month prior to his untimely death. His bloody and brutal murder could not have been committed by one person (Pino), which was initially supported in the trial. Somehow, this supposition was elimintated before sentencing Pino the Frog as the sole murderer. The case was reopened in 2005, but was later shut the same year, remaining inconclusive. A tragic loss of one of the most important cultural contributors of the twentieth century.
