Critic Reviews for Porcile

All Critics (8) | 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.

January 1, 2000 | Full Review…

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

July 11, 2018 | Full Review…

A difficult self-indulgent satire to enjoy.

March 26, 2014 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

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

March 15, 2010 | Full Review…

Slipshod, disconnected, uninvolving, and utterly boring.

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!
