The film as a whole might be a bit problematic,but a few brilliant scenes in it makes it a master piece. Watching this film you can only be amased how could Pasolini be so wise and yet so unfull of himself. His cinematic sense of humour is a gift so rare in it's self irony and humanism. I heard he did he's wonderful short film: "Earth as it appears from the moon" as a second try to do "Hawks and Sparrows" again, better, since he thought "Hawks" came out too ideological.What a genious, he made two great films because he was dissatisfied with one.
