"Salo: 120 Days of Sodom"
1975
Directed by Pier Paolo Pasolini

An extremely controversial film, the last work by Pier Paolo Pasolini. Loosely based on the book by the Marquis de Sade, Pasolini transplanted the setting to Mussolini's post-Nazi-fascist state of Salo. Pasolini creates a symbolic place where sexual joy and normality are punished while perversion is rewarded. The plot concerns eight fascists who round up 16 teenage boys and girls and, in a secluded villa, submit their hostages to various sadistic ordeals including rape, mutilation and murder. "Pasolini has intended the film to work on many different levels: an illustration of the moral anarchy of absolute power; the debasement of sexuality through violence; an exploration of victims as victimizers. The result is, alternately, surreal, harrowing, depressing, repulsive, and fascinating…a hellish journey through a sick soul." With Paolo Bonacelli, Giorgio Cataldi, Uberto Paolo Quintavalle, Aldo Valletti, Caterina Boratto, Elso De Giorgi, Hélène Surgère. Color. Italian with English subtitles. 115 minutes.
 

Guest Comments

From: Jeremy

I want to begin by saying that Pier Paolo Pasolini is a brilliant director. Although very difficult to watch, Salo is
a fascinating, very well directed film. It is great how Pasolini merges literary elements. The film is structured after Dante's Inferno, descending down levels to the films horrifying end. The way that Pasolini updated Sade's classic book is also very imaginative. If you can make it through, it's a really good film.
