Accattone : the scrounger by Pier Paolo Pasolini( Visual )

92 editions published between 1961 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 591 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This first of Pasolini's films presents a vivid picture of the slums of Rome through the story of the pimp, (Accattone, the Sponger) his friends, his enemies and the prostitutes he lives off of. Accattone is neorealism without sentimentality, or remorse. In Pasolini's examination of life in Rome's slums, there is no escape from the cycle of poverty and despair. Accattone puts front and center the character that appears in many of Pasolini's films, the vigorous outsider who rejects the status quo. The Gospel According to Saint Matthew, Theorem, Accattone, all focus on the individual who offends the state and refuses to accept society's hypocrisies, a role that Pasolini played throughout his own life. Pasolini's first film marked one of the most remarkable directorial debuts of the sixties

Trilogy of life( Visual )

2 editions published in 2012 in Italian and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the early 1970s, the great Italian poet, philosopher, and filmmaker Pier Paolo Pasolini brought to the screen a trio of masterpieces of premodern world literature -- Giovanni Boccaccio's The Decameron, Geoffrey Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales, and The Thousand and One Nights (often known as The Arabian Nights)-- and in doing so created his most uninhibited and extravagant work, which he titled his Trilogy of Life. In this brazen and bawdy triptych, the director set out to challenge consumer capitalism and celebrate the uncorrupted human body while commenting on contemporary sexual and religious mores and hypocrisies. His scatological humor and rough-hewn sensuality leave all modern standards of decency behind; these are physical, provocative, and wildly entertaining films. Includes bonus features
