‘This is a thorough study of the true intellectual Pasolini.’(Choice Magazine vol 53:09:2016)
‘Benini succeeds in carving out an innovative space for interpretation, so that her work is an interesting addition to the huge bulk of Pasolini criticism. Furthermore, her work can benefit those who are interested in ‘‘meeting’’ the ‘‘organic intellectual’’ Pasolini, an agent of Italian cultural history for over fifty years.’
(Carla Locatelli Forum Italicum vol 5:01:2017)
‘Benini’s book is a tour de force to be lauded and a must read for any Pasolini scholar.’(Daniela Bini Annali D’Italianistica vol 35:2016)
‘Benini succeeds in carving out an innovative space for interpretation, so that her work is an interesting addition to the huge bulk of Pasolini criticism.’(Carla Locatelli Forum Italicum, vol 51:03:2017)
"For those familiar with the film criticism on Pasolini, Sacred Flesh makes a major contribution to an understanding of the artist's thought and intentions in making these films. It is a contribution that arises from highly developed Italian research and debates."
(Bart Testa University of Toronto Quarterly, vol. 86, n. 3, Summer 2017)
"Organizing her own discourse around specific typological crystallizations in Pasolini’s work, Beninini’s analysis is scrupulously respectful of Pasolini’s words and intentions, even those which are most clearly contradictory. The construction of the argument is careful and precise and draws on well-known sources but also material which has not been published in English."(Pierpaolo Antonello Italian Studies)
“A welcome addition to Pasolini scholarship, film studies, and theology, Benini’s book may well be the ultimate scholarly work on the sacred in Pasolini’s work.”(Maurizio Viano, Department of Cinema and Media Studies, Wellesley College)
