This movie is definitely on the inflammatory and traumatizing side of things. In fact, Pier Paolo Pasolini was murdered before Salo was even released and luckily did not witness the intense backlashes and controversies surrounding the movie.
It’s a super disgusting fever dream nightmare. There’s tons of gore, the most nasty being the scene where a turtle gets graphically murdered and eaten. I felt the bile rise up in my throat as I watched. Just a warning- don’t watch this if you’re eating, just ate, or ever plan to eat ever again.
Gaspar Noe’s sexually depraved flick is most well known for it’s disgusting half hour rape scene where Monica Belluci’s character is brutally violated and beaten beyond belief. Not only that, but there is a super sick continuous shot of a guy’s skull being bashed in. It’s a sight for sore eyes, I tell ya.
This is a really dumb film. But I can’t help but love it. Trashy tranny Divine and her equally trashy family endure blazing escapades and rivalries, celebrate Divine’s birthday and have their trailer burned down. Oh yeah, how could I forget the coolest part! Divine eats shit at the end. REAL dog shit.
This is another one of those films that nearly made me lose my lunch. Helen Mirren plays an abused wife, always in a constant gut wrenching fear of her psychotic gangster of a husband. She and her husband always visit the same restaurant every week, and she begins leaving during meals to cheat on him with some random guy. They have sex in the godamn meat locker. Yuck. And she comes back like nothing happened. But when he finds about the affair, that’s when it gets real sick.
