To accompany screenings of Buñuel's short feature Simon of the Desert, Pasolini wanted to make Orgy, a fairytale about an 'innocent' (Clémenti) who roams the volcanic wastes of Etna devouring people. But then he added a second story mirroring the themes of Orgy, called Pigsty. A savage parody of Godard, Resnais and... Pasolini, ironically chronicling the 'existential anguish' of the children of the bourgeoisie, it features Léaud as a mystic youth whose being finally merges with 'nature': he gets eaten by the pigs he loves. Porcile is not only an exquisitely revolting satire, it is also Pasolini's most fascinating piece of cinema.
