“The unity of the film is provided less by its narrative, however, than by its architectural settings and by its emphasis on polymorphous and joyful sex. Pasolini shot the film mute, across an arc of countries, from Yemen to Nepal (also, perhaps, the arc of the original stories), working with a minimal crew and often operating the camera himself.”

    I liked this movie way too much. It didn’t help that my first roommate and I bonded over weird movies and Pasolini.
