Critic Reviews for Porcile
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.
Pasolini's freak-out is rigorously controlled, his political vaudeville is unsurpassable
No excerpt available.
Slipshod, disconnected, uninvolving, and utterly boring.
Audience Reviews for Porcile
"I killed my father, I ate human flesh, and I quiver with joy!" I dare say the conclusion of Jean-Pierre Leaud's dark comic storyline is even more perfect than that of the cannibalistic morality play. Deliberately crude filmatism may not be for everyone's tastes.
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!
Neat little film, though it's not Pasolini's best. The only transfer of this available on Region 1 really sucks. It's unbelievable how much it sucks and how little time obviously went into putting it together. The subtitles are godawful as well, this really deserves some Criterion attention immediately. Anyway, you can't beat a line like "I killed my father, I ate human flesh and I quiver with joy." Anne Wiazmsky's cool too.
