The final film from Pier Paolo Pasolini remains one of the most shocking films ever made. Set during fascist Italy’s dark days during World War II, Salò updates writings of Marquis de Sade for a repugnant tale of four wealthy libertines who kidnap a group of teenage boys and girls and enact horrific humiliations and violence upon them. It is a formally and conceptually brilliant, if relentlessly nauseating, portrayal of man’s most debased instincts and the capitalist systems that allow them to thrive.
