Pier Paolo Pasolini: An uncomfortable intellectual in fiction and in film
Pasolini is a poet who decided to describe the reality with a film camera but at the same time not to give up on writing and his own literary settings in this new artistic expression. His films will never fully satisfy the critics from either of the two artistic fields, but they will testify “their reality”, transmitting Pasolini’s viewpoint in both literary and cinematic mediums. In the light of Machiedo’s definition of Pasolini as an uncomfortable intellectual, the text presents the elements of this uncomfortableness (provocativeness, blasphemousness), as well as other characteristic that Pasolini’s films and literary works have in common.
