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

Éste film lo ponen siempre en las listas de películas perturbadoras que dejan traumados de por vida a quienes las ven. Por eso, francamente, odio las listas de películas perturbadoras, porque son decepcionantes y solo dicen basura amarillista, cuando las películas que muestran son solo shock barato para apantallar a gente fácil de impresionar. Y esta película no es la excepción. No he leíd... 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

1001 Movies ... my own version (1970's) (121 movies items)

" Notes: 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 "

"There has probably never been a more agonizing portrayal of the terror of helplessness than Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom, in which a small cadre of fascist politicians holds 18 teenagers against their will, repeatedly imposing rapacious tortures on them. That Pier Paolo Pasolini and his collaborators made the film so opulent only makes the den of horrors more infernal; it’s brutal and disgusting but also transfixing and seductive. Salò‘s unbounded horrors of abuse include the prisoners b"

Pasolini Murió En Vano.

“Éste film lo ponen siempre en las listas de películas perturbadoras que dejan traumados de por vida a quienes las ven.

Y esta película no es la excepción.

No he leído el libro, por lo que no la juzgaré como una adaptación.

Cuando se trata de crear shock, creo que es importante hacer una pregunta: ¿Para qué? Hay quienes solo buscan ser espectaculares, y hay quienes quieren o aparentan dar un mensaje, como "A Clockwork Orange". Pues "Salo" optó por lo segundo. Pier Paolo Pasolini al ser marxista y habiendo vivido la Italia de Mussolini,” read more

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
