Beneath the extreme, taboo-breaking surface of Salo (a controversial and scandalous film made in 1975), Gary Indiana argues that there's a deeply penetrating account of human behaviour which resonates as an account of fascism and as a picture of the corporate world we live in. Salo was Pier Pasolini's last film (he was murdered shortly after completing it). An adaptation of Sade's vicious masterpiece, it is an unflinching, violent portrayal of sexual cruelty which many find too disturbing to watch.
