The Trilogia della vita (Trilogy of Life) is a sequence of 3 movies that Pier Paolo Pasolini accomplished prior to his frightening assassination in 1975, and it continues to be one of the so much debatable of his cinematic works. In Allegories of Contamination Patrick Rumble presents an incisive serious and theoretical examine of those movies and the Marxist filmmaker's complicated, 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 charisma surrounding well known, predominantly oral sorts 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 prior works - motion pictures that led him to be pointed out with different radical filmmakers corresponding to Bellocchio, Bertolucci, and Godard. notwithstanding, 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 learn according to the concept that of 'aesthetic contamination,' that is basic to the knowledge of Pasolini's poetics. Aesthetic illness matters the mediation among diversified cultures and diversified old 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 easy heresy.
