Comment A very notorious and controversial exploitation film. Its a very hard going movie, and is strictly not for anyone with overbearing moral or judgemental personality. This movie clashed very strongly with censorship boards around the globe and there are stories of the questionable nature of its production. Please check out the forum thread below for more information and debate.
This film is pretty shocking in its brutality and is sexually explicit nature, even those with a 'strong stomach' might find it a tad objectionable. However, that was mostly the point of this movie, a presentation of a shocking depiction of facism. I'll take the liberty of quoting a summary from the forums:
[quote:fb0484cadc]"Salo" is a great movie. But then it's not really a movie. It's like a scale of barbarism. When I was reading in a newspaper a few years ago about the serbo-croatian war and wondering about the news of a dozen women raped then thrown alive to die of thirst in a well, I was thinking: "Well, that's fucking Salo". Pasolini rules. Even if this film is horrible: it's a true vision of fascism.[/quote:fb0484cadc]
However, taking a technical stance, its very long and not exactly easily approachable. Not ideally shot, however given the history of the movie its certainly one to watch for film buffs.
This is a movie that is prominantly featured in any debate about censorship.
