Accatone, Pier Paolo Pasolini's first feature, is also his first semidocumentary study of "the little homelands": the small, often squalid cultural pockets in the remotest provinces of Italy. Using nonprofessional actors for his leading characters, Pasolini concentrates on Franco Citti, a rural pimp who falls in love with virtuous Franca Pasut. Having previously led an aimless existence, Citti takes a job -- and, it is implied, a bath -- in hopes of impressing his new girl. It isn't long, however, before Citti gives up both job and Pasut, degenerating into a life of violent crime. As was the case with most of his subsequent films, Pasolini both directed and wrote Accatone, adapting the screenplay from his own novel. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide

The studio releasing Pasolini's films, Water Bearer Films, does not remaster the film so the scratched print is what you get nor do they make the subtitles easier to see on a washed out print. I can't understand Italian so the purpose is to read subtitles, but I cannot even stand it when I try to adjust the brightness, it doesn't look better, and the whole thing is completely unviewable.
