Pier Paolo Pasolini s notorious final film, Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom, has been called nauseating, shocking, depraved, pornographic . . . it s also a masterpiece. The controversial poet, novelist, and filmmaker s transposition of the Marquis de Sade s 18th-century opus of torture and degradation to 1944 Fascist Italy remains one of the most passionately debated films of all time, a thought-provoking inquiry into the political, social, and sexual dynamics that define the world we live in.

Very Gritty and not for everyone. a Very loose example of the Marquis deSade's novel. Not the best. I would just go with the book. This video will most likely offend many.Published 24 days ago by Verified Amazon Customer

I cannot find the Criterion blog. I really hope this is released again, I don't want to pay a ridiculous price for this movie.
