Nah..
20 December 2018 | by BatmanFunReviewsSee all my reviews

Willem Dafoe once again tries his best with 'Pasolini' but the movie is a pretty big mess and quite boring as well also. Plus some of the sex scenes or even dialogue and all weren't much needed in here but then again? Why should anyone expect something more than just a disappointing piece of not so good art? (3/10)
