PIER PAOLO PASOLINI RETROSPECTIVE:
The Gospel According to Matthew
1964. Italy. Directed by Pier Paolo Pasolini. With Enrique Irazoqui, Margherita Caruso, Susanna Pasolini. “Pasolini’s film (…) came again and again with a salutary shock of surprise, starting with the very first sequence. (…) With neither the money nor the facilities to embark on far-flung locations, Pasolini made his picture in the rock country of his own southern Italy, as bare and as austere as Stevens’s American desert, but far more intimately related to the scale of men working for their living in an unkind land. (…) In my opinion, The Gospel According to Matthew is incomparably the most effective picture ever made on a scriptural theme...” (Maryvonne Butcher, Film Comment, Autumn 1965). In Italian; English subtitles. 137 min.
Let's meet in the lobby, by the benches. Note that the theater lobby is NOT the main museum entrance.
