Pasolini: The Apocalyptic Anarchist examines the work of this divisive intellectual through the lens of current instability in Europe. The author of this study, philosopher and writer Hans Ulrich Reck, argues that Pasolini has been proved right about many things.
Best known as the director of Teorema, Mamma Roma and Salo, Pier Paolo Pasolini (1922-75) was one of the most productive and exhilarating talents in 20th-century art. As well as being a filmmaker, Pasolini was also a wide-ranging and virtuosic writer, journalist and public thinker. He used the spectrum of his life's work to chronicle and honor the outcasts and underclasses of society whose very existence, for Pasolini, constituted a form of resistance to the status quo. Throughout his career, Pasolini refused the seduction of grand narratives and nostalgia, reading the hidden signs of his time through an all-embracing poetics of experimental thinking.
