Pier Paolo Pasolini acting in a Western.
Nino Crisman: Carlo Lizzani directed REQUIESCANT. Pasolini appeared in the role of the pistolero priest. Acting amused him tremendously. He honed the timing of the lines. It seemed he'd always been an actor. In his dealings with Lizzani, he had an attitude of great respect, and vice versa. Even so, Pasolini was definitely more respectful and obsequious towards Lizzani than the reverse.
