Before getting to his work in cinema, Pasolini begins by answering questions in regard to Marxism, Catholicism, his mother (whom he dearly loved) and his father (whom he had a turbulent relationship with), his early interest in cinema, his close ties to peasantry, hatred for the bourgeoisie, why he started to write poetry in the friulian dialect, and how reading the likes of Dostoevsky, Shakespeare, and Rimbaud as a youngster drove him further away from the fascist ideologies of those around him ...more

سال‌ها پیش مقاله‌ای خواندم که فقط یک جمله‌اش در ذهنم ماند: « سینمای پازولینی، شعر ناب است. ». تا پیش از آن فقط اسمش را شنیده بودم و اینکه فیلم‌های پیچیده‌ای دارد. مدتی گذشت تا در جستجوی داستان‌های اساطیری و ریشه‌ها و تغسیرها و اقتباس‌ها، دیدم از «ادیپ» و «میده‌آ» فیلم ساخته. کمی بعد‌تر در مطالعه سیر حکایت و داستان دیدم «حکایت‌های کانتربوری» و « دکامرون » و « هزارویک شب» را هم ساخته.
با ولع شروع به دیدن همه فیلم‌های پازولینی کردم. دنیایی منحصر به فرد. مسحور قاب‌هایش در «میده‌آ» شدم. صدای طبیعت در

Fairly interesting series of interviews, edited to deal with Pasolini's films chronologically (I think they interviews took place during the filming of Theorema, so there's nothing on the Trilogy of Life or Salo). The interviews also deal with his childhood and family life, his ambivalent relationship with Italian Marxism, communism, the Italian peasantry and Catholic Christianity. I found his reflections on 'The Gospel according to Saint Matthew' particularly interesting:

در ابتدای کتاب می خوانیم:
سینمای پازولینی عمیقا ریشه در فرهنگ ایتالیا دارد. احساس اغتشاش ذهنی بسیاری از منتقدین انگلیسی و آمریکایی هنگام روبرو شدن با آثارش از همینجاست. سبب تنها این نیست که بسیاری از کسانی که تاثیرات مهمی بر پازولینی داشته اند - پاسکولی، گرامشی، روسلینی - در اینجا (انگلستان) کمتر شناخته هستند، بلکه همچنین به این دلیل است که فرهنگ ایتالیایی خود سرشار از ویژگی ها و اجزای متناقض است که در فیلم های پازولینی منعکس می گردند. آشکارترین این تناقض ها، البته بین کاتولیک گرایی و مارکسگرایی
Kamyar Ghafouri-Sanati
پازولینی در بخشی از مصاحبه با جان هلیدی گفته‌است:

من از ریشه با چنین جامعه‌ای مخالفم؛ جامعه‌ای مثل اسرائیل؛ جامعه‌ای که بر پایه اندیشهٔ نژادی و موعودی استوار است. تأسیس یک کشور بر پایه شالوده مذهبی سه هزار ساله، کاری خطرناک و جنون‌آمیز است. من با این بینش مذهبی و ملی‌گرا مخالفم. چنین چیزی وحشتناک است، هر چند که مبنای همه دولت‌ها از همین قبیل است.
Kamyar Ghafouri-Sanati
پازولینی در ۱۹۷۵ در اوستیا در نزدیکی رم، به قتل رسید یک پسر جوان روسپی به نام جوزپه پلوسی مدعی شده بود که قاتل اوست و پازولینی قصد تجاوز به او را داشته‌است (پازولینی یک همجنسگرای آشکار بود و در تعداد معدودی از فیلم‌هایش نیز به رابطه همجنسگرایانه پرداخته )اما بسیاری معتقدند که قتل او مشکوک و به دلیل انگیزه‌های سیاسی بوده‌است. در هفتم می ۲۰۰۵، پلوسی ادعاهای خود را پس گرفت و اعلام نمود که پازولینی توسط سه نفر با لهجهٔ جنوبی که پازولینی را یک «کمونیست کثیف» خطاب کرده بودند به قتل رسیده‌است. همچنین و ...more

One can say as much as possible about a person but when one hears them speak one gets a sense of knowing them better, even if he or she has not said much. With these interviews Pasolini shows himself as someone really ambiguous and contradictory even but honest, fragile and aware of himself. One can also see someone who at the same time as he is a living turmoil outside of society he also thinks he knows society better than anyone else and although some of his answers are really interesting othe ...more
