Pasolini adapts and reinvents Sophocles by turning "Oedipus Rex" into an "autobiography": "I tell the story of my own Oedipus Rex complex. I tell my mystified life, made epic by the legend of Oedipus." Diverse times and spaces, "materials gathered from various sectors of culture": these are the ingredients used by Pasolini in this fascinating mythological interpretation, radically personal and "personalised".
