At once squalid and exalted

The character of Accattone himself, self-destructive and conscious of his situation within a class from which he cannot escape, embodies many of the contradictions in Pasolini's lifetime of coming to terms with Marxism and Catholicism.

Pasolini made a strong feature debut with this gritty portrait of a new type of an Italian anti-hero, departing from the post WWII Italian ne-realism.
