Pier Paolo Pasolini flexes his polemical and satirical muscle with Avant-garde panache.
Pasolini's formal approach establishes his strict dialectic.
Terence Stamp is exquisite as an interloping gigolo who seduces a bourgeoise family, one by one.
Hilarious and chilling at once.
"Teorema's" sturdy structure allows Pasolini's rich metaphorical narrative to envelope the audience.
"Teorema" is a tour de force of filmmaking unlike anything else.
Answers and questions are left for the viewer to puzzle over.
Life is fragile. Intimacy brings danger.
Social constructs are sitting ducks.
Pasolini is God, along with Iggy, Stiv, Mick, and Poly Styrene.
