    The last film Pier Paolo Pasolini directed before his mysterious murder, Salò is one of the most controversial films ever made. A group of young people are kidnapped and tortured at the hand of Italy’s fascist government in this transposition of Marquis de Sade’s Les 120 Journées de Sodome.

    Clemente on Salò: “When I saw it… I did not understand that there is the aesthetic of evil, and that this film really shows that there is such a thing.”
