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:

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.
