    The Decameron (1971)

    World Cinema Classics: Pasolini's adaptation of nine stories from Bocaccio's Decameron is the first film in his "Trilogy of Life," which continues with The Canterbury Tales and concludes with The Arabian Nights. Even though The Decameron catches Pasolini at his most classical, the film still crackles with the filmmaker's signature naturalism, anticlericalism, and lustiness.
