Watch: Feel the Horror and the Beauty of Pasolini's 'Salo'

The feel-bad movie of all time. Director Pier Paolo Pasolini updated the Marquis de Sade’s scandalous The 120 Days of Sodom from 18th century France to Fascist-era Italy, where the degradation of a group of teenagers serves as a political metaphor. Banned for years throughout the world, it calls into question the entire concept of violent entertainment and anyone looking for titillation had better look to their Russ Meyer collection. NSFW.
