Critic Reviews for Porcile

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (2)

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.

Nothing in Pigsty is delivered to the viewer, the vast majority of the film requiring interpretation, other than a powerful final scene that leaves us in no doubt as to Pasolini's opinions on the hypocrisy of a bourgeoisie.

Here, it is the premise that is extraordinary, while the characters are mainly perambulating theories.

Jul 11, 2018 | Full Review…

A difficult self-indulgent satire to enjoy.

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

Audience Reviews for Porcile

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!
