The Trilogia della vita (Trilogy of Life) is a chain of 3 movies that Pier Paolo Pasolini accomplished ahead of his scary assassination in 1975, and it is still one of the so much arguable of his cinematic works. In Allegories of Contamination Patrick Rumble offers an incisive severe and theoretical examine of those movies and the Marxist filmmaker's advanced, unique notion of the cinematic medium.

With the 3 movies that make up the Trilogy of Life - The Decameron, Canterbury Tales, and The Arabian Nights - Pasolini makes an attempt to recapture the air of secrecy surrounding renowned, predominantly oral different types of storytelling via a pro-modern imaginative and prescient of blameless, unalienated our bodies and pleasures. In those works Pasolini looks to desert the explicitly political engagement that marked his previous works - motion pictures that led him to be pointed out with different radical filmmakers akin to Bellocchio, Bertolucci, and Godard. despite the fact that, Pasolini insisted that those have been his 'most ideological films,' and his political engagement interprets right into a mannerist, anti-classical variety or what he referred to as a 'cinema of poetry.' Rumble bargains a comparative research in keeping with the concept that of 'aesthetic contamination,' that's primary to the knowledge of Pasolini's poetics. Aesthetic infection matters the mediation among various cultures and diversified ancient moments. via stylistic experimentation, the Trilogy of Life offers a family tree of visible codes, an interrogation of the subjectivity of narrative cinema. In those motion pictures Pasolini celebrates existence, and maybe therein lies their uncomplicated heresy.
