  • Salò or The 120 Days of Sodom

    1975. Italy. Directed by Pier Paolo Pasolini. With Paolo Bonacelli, Giorgio Cataldi, Elsa De Giorgi. Pasolini’s most disturbing film relocates the ecstatic and repulsive sexual depravities of the Marquis de Sade’s titular novel to the end of Rome’s Fascist period. Inspired by Dante Alighieri’s Inferno, Ferretti retrofitted a farm on the outskirts of Mantova to meet Pasolini’s vision of a 1940s villa. The production design neatly incorporates Futurist motifs, Art Deco architecture, and the neoclassical frescos of Fernand Leger into an organic and inspired whole. In Italian; English subtitles. 116 min.
