The Trilogia della vita (Trilogy of Life) is a chain of 3 movies that Pier Paolo Pasolini accomplished prior to his frightening 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 serious and theoretical research of those movies and the Marxist filmmaker's advanced, unique proposal of the cinematic medium.

With the 3 motion pictures that make up the Trilogy of Life - The Decameron, Canterbury Tales, and The Arabian Nights - Pasolini makes an attempt to recapture the air of mystery surrounding well known, predominantly oral types of storytelling via a pro-modern imaginative and prescient of blameless, unalienated our bodies and pleasures. In those works Pasolini seems to desert the explicitly political engagement that marked his prior works - motion pictures that led him to be pointed out with different radical filmmakers similar 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 kind or what he known as a 'cinema of poetry.' Rumble bargains a comparative examine in line with the idea that of 'aesthetic contamination,' that is primary to the certainty of Pasolini's poetics. Aesthetic illness issues the mediation among diverse cultures and diversified ancient moments. via stylistic experimentation, the Trilogy of Life provides a family tree of visible codes, an interrogation of the subjectivity of narrative cinema. In those movies Pasolini celebrates existence, and maybe therein lies their easy heresy.
