    Description: Edipo Re is another of Pasolini's many adaptations, with stunning Moroccan scenery and a hot-tempered post-Freudian Oedipus whose lust for his mother begins practically as soon as he's out of the womb. Again, Pasolini's presentation is without ornament, with present-day bookends to underline the story's currency --with regard not to patricide and incest, but the willful ignorance of those in power. Franco Citti's Oedipus, rather than a wise man misled by hubris, is a vengeful opportunist; as a youth, he cheats at discus and when he finally makes his way to Thebes after slaughtering his father in a fit of pique, he vanquishes the sphinx not with cunning, but with pure rage.
    All this is told by Pasolini in a stark, almost clinical style - which paradoxically engages the viewer more than a purely emotional approach would.
