Reviews out of Venice have been mixed for Abel Ferrara's Pasolini, the director's portrait of his final few days alive. Indeed, there are several aspects of the film which individually attract both praise and criticism. Here are reviews from Catherine Bray at In Contention, John Bleasdale at CineVue, Xan Brooks at The Guardian, Tommaso Tocci at The Film Stage, Peter Debruge at Variety, David Sexton at Evening Standard, Jessica Kiang at The Playlist and David Rooney at The Hollywood Reporter.
