SALÒ, OR THE 120 DAYS OF SODOM

Assistive Listening T Hearing Loop

Part of Staff Picks, and programmed by Cody, who says: "Perhaps the most controversial movie of all time, Pasolini never got to see the horrified reactions to his final and best film. Don’t miss out on this rare opportunity to see this transgressive film on 35mm, which features footage not found on any U.S. home video release.


The notorious final film from Pier Paolo Pasolini, SALÒ, OR THE 120 DAYS OF SODOM has been called nauseating, shocking, depraved. 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 Fascist Italy in 1944 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.  (Synopsis from the Criterion Collection)
