Oedipus Rex

Sunday, Sep 29, 2013 7:30p

asolini added a modern-day prologue and epilogue to his own translation of Sophocles’s text. The major part of the film is a dreamlike evocation of the Oedipus myth, filmed in Moroccan landscapes and set to music as disparate as Romanian folk tunes and Japanese pieces. As always, Pasolini’s choice of native faces, and the rough-hewn costumes and masks, have an almost hyperreal quality. Franco Citti (Accattone, Mamma Roma) and Silvana Mangano are featured as Oedipus and Giocasta.
