Learn about the Pasolini film Salò. It's another film I add to my list of films I cannot stomach to watch completely.
|Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom, Directed by Pier Paolo Pasolini (1975)|
The film documents horrific events masterminded by members of Italy's fascist elite during the Second World War. An oligarchic assembly chooses from the most beautiful youth in the surrounding towns rural areas to systematically torture and destroy. The message is blunt. Given enough prestige and power, people will live out their cruelest nihilistic fantasies if given the opportunity.
