Porcile (Pigsty). 1969. Italy. Written and directed by Pier Paolo Pasolini. With Pierre Clémenti, Jean-Pierre Léaud, Ugo Tognazzi, Anne Wiazemsky. In Italian; English subtitles. 98 min.
Pasolini’s vicious satire interweaves the strangely perverse stories of two sacrificial victims: a cannibal who devours his own father in a medieval volcanic wasteland, and the pig-fetishist son of a bourgeois magnate who is locked in battle with a former Nazi industrialist (Ugo Tognazzi, in a role originally intended for Jacques Tati!).
