Plot – Spoilers:
Salo is often at the top of any list or discussion on effed up movies, and there’s a reason why. Not only is it a masterfully directed tale adapted from ‘The 120 Days of Sodom’ by Marquis de Sade, Salo is also as disturbing as movies can get without resorting to gore or explicit sequences.

The Sade book was written in the late 1700s while Salo is set during the final years of WW2. In fact, Salo was the name of a part of Italy under the (puppet) control of Nazi Germany. In this political and social climate, four powerful and wealthy perverted men buy 18 teenagers to partake in extended debauchery and perversion in a palace. Joining them are three madams who helped arrange the teens, a pianist and a group of young soldiers to help maintain decorum and also because some of them have large cocks.

The four Masters include a Judge, some kind of President and two brothers, a Duke and Bishop. Before leaving for the palace, they marry each other’s daughters and these girls join them in the palace. They are always in the nude and mostly servile, helping in serving food and similar docile activities.

The Madams who themselves were abused as children, have grown into facilitators of abuse. They regale the men with perverse stories and incidents from their lives in an attempt to arouse them. The Masters are empty and when fleeting moments of sexual arousal arrive, they are desperate to act immediately upon them.

As the days roll by, the perversions get more and more extreme, culminating in a day of violent excess.

If you’re not a coprophiliac, Salo can be a sort of eye opener on connoisseurs of shit as they provide a delicate examination on the varied tastes and refinements of human shit.

I don’t think the nazis and fascists would let this happen. I doubt shit like this would happen in a nazi controlled location

And to think that you have to some of the stuff in order to keep your fame. not entirely, but they do perform this kinda stuff in certain rituals at Hollywood. fucked up thing is, it never stops, not really anyway.

also, this wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. I think it’s partially due to me being de-sensitized to this sorta stuff.

A perverse film, but one that seems prophetic of the tortures which later occurred at Abu Ghraib. The film proposes the thesis that power only corrupts and disturbs those who hold it, which the later real-life event seems to have confirmed.

I have never understood the hype over this film. Everything feels fake. It tries so hard to shock and that’s its problem. It comes across as boring, pretentious and childish.

Was looking forward to seeing this as it seems to always be near the top of people’s most disturbing films list. Thanks effedmovies for making it easily available. That said, I absolutely hated it. Boring, comically acted and simply ridiculous. Glad I was finally able to see it so I never have to think about it again. Not because it was disturbing, I found it to fake to effect me. Because it was Just bad. Cheers!

I have heard a lot of people raving about this film and the controversy surrounding it. Sure, the shit eating scenes were a bit out there but apart from that it was boring ( reminded me a bit of Caligula). It was slow, pretentious and self indulgent and in the end pointless.The ending was unsatisfactory leaving viewers hanging and saying wtf. Rate it 4 out of 10.

The whole fascists eating shit checks out. Many of Hitler’s prostitutes admitted that he enjoyed getting shat on. With that said though, this movie was still quite underwhelming. All the acting and reactions were so stiff and honestly boring. 10/10 for the portrayal of fascists as idiotic degenerates, but movie itself is more like 5/10

Everything in the films is twisted. It’s not nazis or fascists BUT leftist and communists. They are the one pushing all the depravity in the world. Fetishes are ok to a degree. Shit belongs in a toilet. Scatting and puking are for perverts who need to be locked up in an insane asylum. Throw away the key . Uggg

This movie was honestly really boring and I don’t understand the hype, HOWEVER, I did enjoy the glamour of the makeup, costumes , and hair. The pencil brows were on point, the hair was immaculately curled, I LOVED the big blue and green eyeshadow, and Renata was honestly really pretty and was the most robbed character. I said what I said. Terrible movie, bad acting, and honestly not disturbing at all, other than being gross. I was also confused where the daughters went in the beginning All of this being said, some of the boys were kinda cute and they were also robbed of having more screen time. I hated the weird old dude who was cross eyed, he was the worst character, and out of the four old guys, the one with the beard was the hottest, he kinda looked like our friend who refused to watch with us. This movie was enormously horrible and I won’t be watching again but it did have some pretty moments. Italy is pretty. Anyways this was my review, I hope you liked it! ~Shitnora<3

Absolute rubbish…. designed for the “everyone is a Nazi but me” crowd.

These are the green-haired twenty-five year old children with the shit in their faces who can’t make proper change in a convenience store without the cash register telling them how to do so. The ones whose mother and, if they have one, father just want them to GTFO of the basement. The habitually offended…. the imperishable victim… Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the Social Justice Warrior!

Lord… please take them all before they have a chance to reproduce.

Not to worry. Most don’t know how to have meaningful sex, so….

This actually does happen, everyday. with the ultra rich, elite, and powerful scumbags who run the world. If you want to know what a cloning center looks like, this was a small taste but it’s far worse, and on a much bigger scale. These scumbags are kept safe and these things really do go on in deep underground military bases, undisturbed in the dark. They use the E.T. greys who are working side-by-side with our own government to abduct people, and implant them. the implants people get up their noses in these painful procedures are the ones selected for REM consciousness transfer when a duplicate clone of them is developed and ready to be used and abused through duplication cloning. The consciousness transfer is activated through the implanted chips by the greys. Hollywood gives away all kinds of hints through movies and social media as well as the music industry.This has been going on since the 50’s. Research Donald Marshall, Human cloning. Phil Schneider. Bill Cooper I have seen many celebrities there and many politicians and leaders from other nations and Governments. This must be stopped and is the biggest secret out there. Please look into it…

This comment section is fucking deplorable…Funny thing here is that among all of the replies, all you see is Nazi this and Jew that, when the film is adapted straight from the book, which was written by DeSade in and around 1785 while he was institutionalized at Bastille, and not published until 1904 after the writings were recovered from the wall of what was his cell over 100 years later. WAY WAY WAY before Hitler was even fucking born, So stop the Nazi shit, this film, like the novel, has nothing to do with Nazism…Like it or not DeSade has been a celebrated author now for in and around 230 years. Show some respect.

so many edgy little neonatzis in these comments… either way, the film was underwhelming at best, definitely doesn’t deserve the hype it was so well acclaimed for. Definitely did not end the way i expected, but didn’t end satisfactory either. Glad i watched it now though, so i never have to watch it again. i’ve seen far better films than this that are criminally underrated. i rate 4/10. poor writing and acting, and was just boring in general.

That’s not the full movie! It’s missing scenes! I’ve looked everywhere, rented the dvd, watched the criterion and now this! They’re all missing scenes! I’m not referring to the scenes that where cut before the release. You can see pictures of the missing scenes on IMDb proving the film has been digitalised. If you can’t find the correct copy don’t put uncut in the title! The website itself is excellent but this I specific page disappointed me. Please consider removing the word uncut from the title.
Thank you

this movie is extremely underwhelming, especially when deciding to watch it after reading a bunch of reviews that talk about how “disturbing” it is. didn’t know a movie that mainly consists out of repetitive low end torture and a too large amount of coprophilia is worthy of all this attention. do yourself a favour and DONT waste your time on this bullshit.

Not to sound weird, but I kinda like this movie. Yeah, it’s f*cked up, but in a way it’s also pretty. Music, costumes, actors…if not for the overplayed r*pe and sh*t eating scenes, I would probably re watch this just for the aesthetic.

This movie literally represents us today.

The Neofacism we face. Corporations ruling our lives.
Girone della Merde represents how we eat shit constantly from corporations with the belief that what we’re eating is “Healthy”

Girone del Sangue represents how these people in power play God.
Look at health insurance companies and pharmaceutical companies in America.
A Helo ride to the hospital costs an American up to $350,000.00

The “Studs” represents our law enforcement
