NYFF 14 PASOLINI post screening public Q&A wDefoe and director ABEL FERRARA audience erupts...

As usual with this director when Pasolini the new Able Ferrer film played the New York Film Festival (2014) controversy erupted. Here he and actor Willem Dafoe  meet the audience ,.Dennis Lim, chief programer at the Film Society moderates .his answer to my question is interesting   FYI Ferrara's  Pasoline is Mama's boy and his brutal murder not a political act but simply a bad trick act.

here are the program notes from the NEW YORK FILM FESTIVAL (2014) prestred by the the Film Society of Lincoln Center :          

Pier Paolo Pasolini—filmmaker/poet/novelist, Christian, Communist, permanent legal defendant, and self-proclaimed “inconvenient guest” of modern society—was an immense figure. Abel Ferrara’s new film compresses the many contradictory aspects of his subject’s life and work into a distilled, prismatic portrait. We are with Pasolini during the last hours of his life, as he talks with his beloved family and friends, writes, gives a brutally honest interview, shares a meal with Ninetto Davoli (Riccardo Scamarcio), and cruises for the roughest rough trade in his gun-metal gray Alfa Romeo. Over the course of the action, Pasolini’s life and his art (represented by scenes from his films, his novel-in-progressPetrolio, and his projected film Porno-Teo-Kolossal) are constantly refracted and intermingled to the point where they become one. A thoughtful, attentive, and extremely frank meditation on a man who continues to cast a very long shadow, featuring a brilliant performance by Willem Dafoe in the title role. Note: This film contains scenes of a sexually explicit nature
