    PASOLINI

    ABEL FERRARA France, 2014

    An impressionistic interweaving of biography and poetic adaptation, Abel Ferrara’s portrait of the final days of Pier Paolo Pasolini is as tender as it is enigmatic. Willem Dafoe uncannily embodies the great director in a biopic that brims with life, even while haunted by the spectre of death.

One of Ferrara’s most personal films, this dark and shimmering work of disorientating autofiction explores the toll of making art while battling personal demons.
