Sophocles meets Freud in Pier Paolo Pasolini’s astonishing reading of the Oedipus myth.
Sophocles meets Freud in Pasolini’s astonishing reading of the Oedipus myth. Franco Citti plays Pasolini-as-Oedipus in an ‘ethnographic’ telling of the ancient tale of a man fated to solve the riddle of the sphinx, kill his own father and marry his own mother. The approach is anything but purist (Moroccan locations, a world music score), while an autobiographical prologue and epilogue bring it all back home to the author.
