Overview

Salo, or the 120 Days of Sodom

The final work of notorious Italian director Pier Paolo Pasolini, this film updates the Marquis de Sade's most extreme novel to fascist Italy in the final days of WW II. Dispensing with the novel's meditations on sexual liberation and the search for truth, Pasolini presents four decadents who kidnap dozens of young men and women and subject them to the most hideous forms of torture and perversion in an isolated villa. Rape, murder, and a coprophagic banquet are only the beginning of the atrocities on display. Photographed by Tonino Delli Colli, the film also features a lavish score by Ennio Morricone.

The piece is very disturbing and not for the faint of heart. At times it seemed as if it were being especially shocking for the sake of appalling the viewer. However histoically accurate it may have been, there were moments when I felt the whole thing was over the top ridiculous. I wouldn't suggest this film to anyone.
