Superstar opera diva Maria Callas portrays the avenging sorceress of Greek legend in Pasolini’s primitivist retelling of Euripides’ tragedy. Spurned by her lover Jason, pagan priestess Medea unleashes a maelstrom of bloodshed. Italian iconoclast Pasolini’s heady mix of mythology, Marxism, and magic distills the tale to its most abstract and elemental, while Callas, in a nearly wordless performance, is electrifying as the woman who rains fire on her enemies.
