Whoever Says the Truth Shall Die Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Whoever Says the Truth Shall Die is a naked-truth documentary on the life and work of Italian filmmaker Pier Paolo Pasolini (1922-1975). Using still pictures, excerpts from such Pasolini efforts as [[Feature~V20399~The Gospel According to St. Mathew~thegospelaccordingtostmatthew]], and extensive interviews, director Philo Bregstein charts Pasolini's matriculation into one of the most controversial cinematic figures in the world. Anti-fascist, pro-Communist, homosexual, "blasphemer"-all these were Pasolini, and much much more besides. Pasolini himself is heard and seen in probing question-and-answer sessions, as are several of his colleagues, including director Bernardo Bertolucci and actress Laura Betti. The title Whoever Says the Truth Shall Die proves prophetic when Pasolini is bludgeoned to death by a 17-year-old boy. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
