Editor's Note
Pier Paolo Pasolini was a celebrated poet, writer, and all-around intellectual, but it was his maverick, controversial filmmaking that distinguished him as an influential artistic force. The director's last film, 120 DAYS OF SODOM, an adaptation of the Marquis de Sade's 18th century novel, remains his most notorious (and most censored) due to its scenes of graphic rape and torture of adolescents. Pasolini relocates the novel's horrific abuses from France to the final days of Mussolini's reign, effectively rendering a grim portrait of the degradation of the human body and spirit beneath Fascist and Nazi rule.

One of the most controversial films ever made, Pier Paolo Pasolini’s Salò, or The 120 Days of Sodom has been re-issued by the Criterion Collection on Blu-ray. So sought after was Criterion’s long out-of-print 1998 DVD release of the film, collector’s were paying up to five hundred dollars for a genuine copy. Now this disturbing critique of the corrupting properties of unchecked power is readily available in high definition. Whether you choose to witness the various atrocities portrayed in the film, vividly displayed in Criterion’s first rate transfer, depends largely on your tolerance for disgusting imagery....read the full review

Professional Reviews

New York Times
"...[Pasolini's] most significant film....[Represents] the bitter, empty end." 10/11/1977 p.11

Sight and Sound
"Pasolini's last film remains profoundly disturbing, its ideas about the commodification of bodies...and the absolute corruption of power resonating far further than its setting..." 11/01/2008 p.84

Total Film
4 stars out of 5 -- "[B]eneath the glacial cinematography and ornate tableaux writhes a terrifying warning about fascism, consumerism, violence and voyeurism..." 12/01/2008 p.146

Empire
3 stars out of 5 -- "A disturbing, necessary film, this makes a fascinating contrast with the current 'torture porn' cycle..." 11/01/2008 p.194
