(1968 Pier Paolo Pasolini) A mysterious visitor in the form of peak-gorgeousness Terence Stamp shows up at the home of a bourgeois Italian family of four. He almost benevolently sets about seducing members of the household. He departs as inexplicably as he arrives. The family’s lives alter in profound ways. Pier Paolo Pasolini’s modern parable is the kind of film that inspires long conversations on the sidewalk outside the theater afterward, a rich intellectual and spiritual puzzle that invites interpretation and resists it, and earns that indulgence with its audacity and skill.
1968 Pier Paolo Pasolini. 1.85:1 B&W/Color DCP 98 min. In Italian, English and Spanish with English subtitles.
