  • Pier Paolo Pasolini's dreamlike rendering of Sophocles' ageless tragedy about a man who unknowingly kills his father and marries his mother. Shifting between stark Moroccan desertscapes and contemporary Bolognian settings, Pasolini incorporates eclectic strains of both Western and Eastern culture into this unique and startling version of a classic tale.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...A fascinating film, one that desmonstrates the late, controversial Italian director's gifts as one of the most original and perverse film poets of his generation..."
    New York Times

    "...Pasolini has been largely faithful to his source while making an ancient time and place come vividly alive....Shot in gorgeous natural hues, OEDIPUS REX unfolds in its desert settings with primitive grandeur, accompanied by an extraordinary score..."
    Los Angeles Times
