Customer Review

on 24 May 2010
I've been aching to watch Salo for quite some time now, and was constantly finding it on the internet labelled as one of the most disturbing films of all time.

I have to say I was just a little dissapointed with it - yes it was disturbing in some parts, and it was darkly funny too - but the film itself was just a 2 hour excursion into sexual depravity, and the film itself doesn't really deserve the acclaim that it recieves in my opinion.

The script and cinematography are distinctly average, and yes, it is sometimes funny - but after the first half an hour is up, you begin to become immune to anything happening on screen. From then on it's just a case of sitting through some poo eating and some more anal sex.

This is worth taking the time to watch, and I think the inital premise of Salo is disturbing. However, I can't help but think that an alternative director with a darker vision, would have made all the difference, because as it stands I just don't think that it deserves all the praise it's given.
