I thought this movie was deeply disturbing but I found it rather dull, boring and with no disturbing atmosphere at all, movies like Cannibal Holocaust had disturbing moments due to the shaky camera effect and the great soundtrack, but this movie with it's lame piano music as the only music in the entire movie had no disturbing atmosphere at all, it seemed there was one act after the other, nothing... read more

I've seen plenty of movies I positively detested, movies so god-awful and atrociously made that it gives me hope as a filmmaker, considering I could do a better job in my fucking sleep. But it is very, very, VERY rare that I find a movie that I actually regretted watching. Even with the worst of the worst movies I've subjected myself to, I never regretted watching them because they gave me insight... read more

This movie most definitely changed my life. Sadism in its purest form. Pasolini made a masterpiece.

" What is it about? In World War II Italy, four fascist libertines round up nine adolescent boys and girls and subject them to one hundred and twenty days of physical, mental and sexual torture."

A good movie

“In spite of or because of its controversial reputation, I was quite eager to check this movie. On top of that, it had been years since I saw a movie directed by Pier Paolo Pasolini. Well, eventually, it definitely deserves its reputation as it was easily one of the most f*cked-up movies I have ever seen and I have seen quite a lot of weird and messed-up flicks. In fact, the sex scenes were not so unbearable but it was the first time I saw a movie dealing with scatology and these scenes were just awful to behold. Later on, it didn't get much better with some horrible torture scenes. Seriously, compared to this movie, such movies like 'Saw' or 'Hostel' were pretty much like a walk in a park. Eventually, what was Pasolini's point? In my opinion, he wanted to show that Fascism was and still is” read more

"30th of November, DVD Pier Paolo Pasolini on tunnettu elokuvistaan, jotka käsittelevät myönteisesti seksuaalisuutta. Ohjaajan joutsenlaulu Sodoman 120 päivää taas kääntää hänen tyylitajunsa päälaelleen ja käy läpi seksuaalisuuden alistavimmat, nöyryyttävimmät ja sadistisimmat osa-alueet. Elokuvana Salò on äärimmäinen satiiri korruptiosta ja alistavasta vallankäytöstä, joka tosin koko kahden tunnin kestonsa ajan vain alleviivaa tätä kyseistä kannanottoa vähän liiank"

" The ultimate depraved movie? It is a movie situated in WW2 and tells what evil actions people do when they come into power and can treat people like animals. They force kidnap teenagers into perverted sex and their sick Maquis de Sade's fantasies and this is the closest a film gaze into the evil of man's soul. If you finish the film you should congratulate yourself for surviving it together with your "masters" and "executioners" but don't expect to feel great or happy with life afterwards. Actu"

"Not to be confused with the Ukrainian/Russian delicacy salo, which is salted pork fat, this film's reputation is well deserved. The only reason that it didn't shock me is that I knew what kind of sick shit to expect. At least it's better than Taxidermia. "

I've seen worse at a younger age when I rented some extreme sado-maso/fetish movies. as I said before a disturbing movie is in my opinion only created by some intelligent camerawork and a great soundtrack which was here not the case. I found even the Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) more disturbing than this pervert fascist pig flick.” read more
