If you search for the most controversial movies of all time, Salo 120 Days of Sodom would be in the top ten of most of them. The boys discuss it in the latest of our series on controversial movies.
Salo is described as an Italian horror art film, written and directed by Pier Paolo Pasolini. The movie was Pasolini’s last movie, as it was released three weeks after his murder. This was a possible a Mafia-related assassination.
The movies tell how the high elite of Italian society take teenagers to a rural location and keep them there for their own perverse pleasure. The movie contains “acts including sodomy, coprophilia, transvestism, S&M, rape, and masturbation.”
This doesn’t mention how several characters are forced to eat human faeces at one point. It’s fun for all the family.
Even by today’s standards, Salo is a very hard movie to watch, not for the faint of heart. It’s a good job that Shawn and NGL have no taste or any kind of moral compass, since they watched it and talk about it here.
It’s worth the watch just to see Shawn laughing about the movie before we even start.
We still have more controversial movies to talk about. Both of us are holding off A Serbian Film, since we both don’t think we could stomach it again.
