Salò or The Hundred and Twenty Days of Sodom (BFI Modern Classics)

Gary Indiana


Salò or The Hundred and Twenty Days of Sodom (Salò o Le centoventi giornate di Sodoma, 1975) is among the such a lot debatable and scandalous motion pictures ever made. It used to be Pier Paolo Pasolini's final movie; he used to be murdered almost immediately after finishing it. An variation of Sade's vicious masterpiece, yet relocated to Fascist-ruled Italy, Salò is an unflinching, violent portrayal of sexual cruelty which many locate too hectic to watch.
yet insightful works of art are usually tense. underneath the extraordinary, taboo-breaking floor of Salò, Gary Indiana argues, is a deeply penetrating account of human habit that resonates not just as an account of fascism yet as an image of the company, morally compromised global we are living in today.
