Pasolini's controversial film has been widely regarded to be one of the most disturbing ever made, based on the book, The 120 Days of Sodom, by the Marquis de Sade. Pasolini transposes the setting of De Sade's book from 18th century France to the last days of Mussolini's regime in the Republic of Salo.

Not as good as you'd imagine.

I didn't imagine this to be any good at all. Seems like it is living off it's notoriety rather than it's quality as a film.
#3
I've heard the book is very good.
#4
I've not seen the UK release of this, but having seen another version I'd imagine the UK release is butchered to hell!

To be honest it's not a great film in my opinion.
#5
neither book nor film are up to much
#6
If you're after arthouse smut save your money until they release Ai No Corrida on BR.
#7
Ai No was terrible. :P
#8
Would they not have to remove a lot that was in the book. I thought the book covered many elements that were very illegal to film.......
#9
Most video sites that proudly exhibit have homeless people fighting and Russian's beating the girlfriends up will have the key scenes from this film available.

i remember when this used to sell for over £100 on standard DVD
#11
I like my arthouse movies as much as the next man but ANY movie that uses explicit sex as it main selling point and dresses it up as 'art' usually is sh**, look at Ai No Corrida, 9 Songs and more recently Antichrist...All they have in common are they are all drivel but people will watch it because of the curiousness factor...Avoid.

This weekend I went to an "art showing" in chelsea....and it ended up being a bunch of upper crust gays there to doodle the nude models, look at the nude sculptures and bed the rentboys who showed up also.

WHO PAYS £2800 FOR A PICTURE OF OLD INDIA?

Anyhoo, there is art, and then there is vulgar garbage, and im afraid this is just an excuse for perverted, emotionally devastated sex manics to get off on.

I could not vote this any colder.

I've just looked at some info on imdb. This film sounds like instant depression. If someone wants to commit suicide but hasn't quite got their nerve up this ought to take them over the edge. Life's depressing enough at times without adding this film to your problems. Thanks, but no thanks.

Anyone who buys this or the book from anywhere on the net is recorded by the "Authorities" you know.
#15
Shocking and interesting, not necessarily enjoyable but a masterpiece of dispair.

I'd question your paranoia if you think that.

I don't get why people are saying 'this is not a GREAT film' . What were you expecting when tracking down such an elusive and often banned film? Crank 2 or Wall-E?

It's supposed to be offensive and is. It was made by an extremely controversial director who died having his brains beaten out by a rent boy in an Italian field. It's an attempt at making an analogy of the Marquis De Sade's writing. It is a film made over 30 years ago that has been completely banned in Britain until recently, but freely available from any other European country.

I'd agree with the crum666 "a masterpiece of despair".

I saw this film when it was first produced (at a private cinema club in Soho) and - though I thought I was open-minded and sufficiently robust, it gave me horrible nightmares and left me traumatised. I've seen thousands of films and this is the only one I truthfully regret watching. Unfortunately some of the sadistic scenes are still imprinted on my mind. Yuk! :-(

is this a black & white film?

I think you're misunderstanding what many of us mean by 'bad'. I mean bad as in badly made, badly scripted and badly acted. NOT bad as in offensive.

There are many people who think that because something is banned it must automatically be deep and meaningful. This isn't the case here. Sadly any point it IS trying to make is lost in a vast expanse of mediocrity and worse.

I got the the impression from others that this is some overhyped and, frankly, dull arthouse smut, but you have totally sold it to me there with that review.

I could not vote this any hotter, now. :thumbsup:

You've just expanded my vocabulary with 'coprophilia' as I looked it up but I wish you hadn't :x

Sounds like this director makes Ken Russell look sane. Hats off to those who can stomach something like this. Definitely not for me.
