Critic Reviews for Edipo re (Oedipus Rex)
Pasolini both humanizes the classical legend and reaches deep into the modern psyche to find its origins in ancient agonies.
It's not always necessary to understand Pasolini to be riveted by what he does.
Pasolini's working of the Sophocles tragedy, though not wholly successful, has its very definite strengths.
One of the most underrated, neglected, and powerful of Pier Paolo Pasolini's features.
Fervid chanting and handheld tracking shots inform Pasolini's jangling, fabulously blunt pageant, filled to the brim with mysterious splendor
Audience Reviews for Edipo re (Oedipus Rex)
Pasolini's Oedipus Rex works great for me. Loved the desert setting, tribal elements, and dramatic intensity. The film feels grounded in an earthy seriousness, which allows for an Oedipus that is supremely prideful without being ridiculous.
Pasolini is an interesting director, it's really worth it for movie fans to at least see one of his movies. This one is his interpretation of the old Oedipus Rex story. It actually takes place where the old story says it takes place, which is awesome. The actors are really good too. The movie is very realistic and intense. I really liked it.
Removing sentiments,matrimonial confusions,it's no less than a naked intellect.Pasolini is the withering god of punctuality and the desolate face of Citti is fully eloquent in the antique manner of its topic.The kings are not dead yet..
