Pasolini

"Rome is finished, my friend." Pier Paolo Pasolini is one of the most iconic filmmakers Italy has ever produced, and he also had his hands in many other arenas as a poet, novelist, journalist, playwright, actor, painter, philosopher, and more. Now Willem Dafoe (Spider-Man, Out of the Furnace) will bring him to life in the aptly titled Pasolini, the latest film from Abel Ferrara (Bad Lieutenant, Mulberry St.). The film chronicles the final days of Pasolini's life and the events surrounding his murder. Now the first trailer for the film has arrived (the film plays at TIFF), and this looks to be a promising turn from Dafoe. Watch!

Here's the first trailer for ABel Ferrara's Pasolini from Cine Maldito (via The Playlist):

Pasolini is directed by Abel Ferrara (Bad Lieutenant, Mulberry St.) from a script he co-wrote with Maurizio Braucci and Nicola Tranquillino. The film is playing at TIFF this month and the program guide describes the film about Pier Paolo Pasolini (Willem Dafoe) as "a kaleidoscopic view of the last day of the artist's life, in 1975" as Pasoilini struggles with the censors as he is about to finish Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom, pauses for an interview with a journalist that allows him to reflect on ideas of sex and politics, has lunch with his beloved mother, welcomes friends and former lovers and more. There's no official US release date yet.

I love Willem and he definitely looks like Pasolini, but I'll always think of him as Willem. Plus, and maybe it's because I'm Italian, but this really should have been in Italian with an Italian cast..
