SALOA Film by Pier Paolo PasoliniBanned, censored and reviled the world over since its release, Pasolini's final and most controversial masterpiece is presented here fully uncut and uncensored in a brand new restoration. The content and imagery of Salo is extreme: it retains the power to shock, repel and distress. But it remains a cinematic milestone: culturally significant, politically vital, visually stunning.Based on a novel by the Marquis de Sade - and taking as it setting the miniature fascist republic which Mussolini established in 1944 in Italy - this is a film about power, corruption, and the degradation of the human body. It is a devastating, angry cry from one of the most controversial auteurs in cinema historySpecial features Presented in both High Definition and Standard DefinitionIncludes both Italian-language and English-language versions'Ostia-The Death of Pasolini' by Coil - the band's 1986 track with a new video accompanimentOriginal Italian trailerOpen Your Eyes!
