SALÒ, OR THE 120 DAYS OF SODOM
SALÒ, O LE 120 GIORNATE DI SODOMA
1975, Park Circus/MGM, 117 min, Italy/France, Dir: Pier Paolo Pasolini

Be prepared, SALÒ is not for the weak of heart. The polar opposite of the "Trilogy of Life," SALÒ depicts with cold precision the sexual and psychological atrocities visited on 16 young men and women, held hostage by a group of depraved nobles at the end of WWII. Pasolini based the film on a notorious book by the Marquis de Sade but shifted the locale to the town of Salo, where Pasolini’s brother was killed during the war (and where he himself was arrested by the Nazis). One of the most controversial and widely censored films ever made (it took over 25 years for the uncut version to screen in England), SALÒ has lost none of its power to shock and disturb. With Paolo Bonacelli, Giorgio Cataldi, Umberto Quintavalle. In Italian with English subtitles.

PIGSTY
PORCILE
1969, MovieTime, 98 min, Italy/France, Dir: Pier Paolo Pasolini

A bitter attack on fascism and oppressive social conventions in general, this final addition to Pasolini’s “Mythical Cycle” interweaves two surreal satires. In the first, a young man (Pierre Clémenti) wanders a beautiful volcanic landscape, gradually developing an insatiable appetite for human flesh. In the second, the bored son of a German industrialist (French star Jean-Pierre Léaud) ignores his family and fiancée (Anne Wiazemsky), preferring to spend his endless free time among pigs in the sty.


Both films in Italian with English subtitles.
