“An essential work...It's certainly the film in which Pasolini's protest against the modern world finds its most extreme and anguished expression.”—Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
In one of the most controversial and ultimately misunderstood films ever made, Pasolini horrifically, shockingly, and fearlessly revisits his early premise of sexuality as a liberating force and comes to a new conclusion. The film is structured around the three descending levels of hell from the Marquis de Sade’s 120 Days of Sodom: the circles of Madness, Excrement, and Blood. SALÒ is set in World War II Italy, where four of the fascist elite select sixteen innocent young men and women to become their sex slaves in a graphic and morally illustrative tale of lost humanity and the corrupting nature of power. In Italian with English subtitles. 35mm. (BS)
Note: Explicit sex and violence.
