See Willem Dafoe as Pasolini in Abel Ferrara's biopic trailer

2 September 2014 6:32 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Abel Ferrara's Pasolini has released its first trailer.

Willem Dafoe will take on the eponymous role as the controversial filmmaker in the biopic.

Pier Paolo Pasolini was best known for his work on films such as Marquis de Sade adaptation Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom and The Gospel According to St Matthew.

The film focuses on the filmmaker's final days.

After Pasolini was murdered, a prostitute confessed to the crime but later claimed that he had been forced to do so when his family was threatened.

Pasolini's muse Ninetto Davoli also features in the movie.

The film is yet to announce a release date. »

Trailer for Abel Ferrara’s ‘Pasolini’, starring Willem Dafoe

1 September 2014 5:27 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Independent New York filmmaker Abel Ferrara became best-known for his low-budget, shockingly violent films that explore the roughest neighbourhoods of the Big Apple. From his 1979 Driller Killer, for which Ferrara starred, edited, and wrote the songs – to his more mainstream hits, The King of New York and Bad Lieutenant – to his most recent film, Welcome to New York, the director has successfully retained his stylistic edge while garnering critical acclaim. Now the controversial filmmaker is set to premiere his newest film at Tiff later this week, a bio-pic about another famed and controversial filmmaker Pier Paolo Pasolini. And right before its premiere, the first trailer has arrived.

For the unfamiliar: Italian director, screen writer, essayist, poet, critic and novelist, Pier Paolo Pasolini is best known for his controversial and provocative films, most notably Salo. He demonstrated a unique and extraordinary cultural versatility, and has since, come to be valued by »

Watch: First Trailer For Abel Ferrara's 'Pasolini' Starring Willem Dafoe

1 September 2014 2:15 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Abel Ferrara has always been known for creating characters and stories that delve into  extreme human behaviour, but his last couple of films have concerned events that he did not have to dream up. This summer, the filmmaker unveiled "Welcome To New York," the fictionalized tale of former Imf chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn, and now, just a couple of months later, Ferrara is in Venice where he's premiering "Pasolini," a feature about controversial, slain filmmaker Pier Paolo Pasolini. And a pretty great first trailer for the film has arrived. Vacillating between English, Italian and French, this looks to be a respectful and quite beautiful look at the director who brought "Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom" and "The Gospel According To St. Matthew" to cinemas. The movie will focus on the events surrounding Pasolini's murder: while a male prostitute initially confessed to the crime, he later said the act was coerced via. »

The Definitive Foreign Language Horror Films: 20-11

25 July 2014 6:41 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

In an odd turn of events, this list has a number of films that don’t have English-language titles. They just go by whatever the original title was. Good for us. What we do see in this portion of the list is a few movies that weren’t really created specifically to be horror films, but their themes and visuals made it so. In addition, we have some heavyweights of non-horror cinema creating horror films that push the genre all the more upward. “Thinking man horror,” if you will.

20. Le locataire (1976)

English Language Title: The Tenant

Directed by: Roman Polanski

Roman Polanski has made one of the greatest horror “trilogies” of all time with 1965′s British production Repulsion, 1968′s American production Rosemary’s Baby, and 1976′s French production The Tenant, completing his “Apartment Trilogy.” Unlike the other two, Polanski actually stars in The Tenant as Trelkovsky, a reserved man renting an apartment in Paris. »

Killing of Italian Director Pier Paolo Pasolini to Be Investigated in ‘La Macchinazione’

1 July 2014 6:43 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome – The still-mysterious 1975 murder of Pier Paolo Pasolini, the Italian filmmaker, poet, and novelist known for “The Gospel According to Matthew” and “Salò – or the 120 Days of Sodom,” among other works, will get yet another cinematic treatment in Italian director David Grieco’s “La Macchinazione,” which started shooting today in Rome.

Grieco’s pic on the leadup to Pasolini’s killing comes shortly after Abel Ferrara shot his “Pasolini” pic in Rome, with Willem Dafoe in the title role. That pic is now reportedly in post.

Grieco, who worked with Pasolini as a thesp in his “Theorema,” before becoming a journalist and, more recently, a helmer, is claiming he will shed new light on the final months in Pasolini’s life. The visionary Italian cultural figure, considered a towering figure of contemporary European cinema, was murdered on on All Soul’s Day Nov. 2, 1975, when he was run over by his »

‘Teorema’ is Pasolini’s most enigmatic film

15 March 2014 5:20 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Teorema

Directed by Pier Paolo Pasolini

Written by Pier Paolo Pasolini

1968, Italy

A work that is chronologically and aesthetically his mid-period film, Teorema is Pier Paolo Pasolini at his finest hour. It is not Neo Realist cousin like Accatone (1961) Mamma Roma (1962), nor is it the debaucherous snarl of Salò (1975); it has a larger portion of the religious parable than The Hawks and the Sparrows (1966), and is as interested in sex as The Decameron (1971).

Teorema is a work of quiet suddenness. It moves quickly from documentary-style social film to its enigmatic plot, and Pasolini seems intent on doing away with any contrivances of a traditional narrative set-up. Within minutes of the opening credits the upper-class family at the center of the story receives a brief telegram: “Arriving tomorrow.” Immediately thereafter, the Visitor (or the Angel, as he’s sometimes called) is in their midst, disrupting and confusing husband, wife, son, daughter, »
