What are your thoughts on the film?

I used to think it was kinda hot. But most of it is fake. You can see the real thing on the Internet now.

I have beat off while watching parts of it. The more disgusting parts I fast forward thru. My thoughts on the film are that it makes me horny and feeling bad for such horrors making me horny.

Was the first time I stopped a film after only so far in. Too much for this dude.

Unwatchable piece of shit, I mean, really "shit"

It's an ugly movie that does nothing more than remind us that Pasolini liked filming naked men.

I downloaded the movie when I was a teen just to see the nude scenes and just like R2 I jerked off to the famous "Trousers up, shirts down" scene where two cute guys show their hairy uncut dicks in close up.
I finally watched the whole thing only recently and there's actually a really good movie hiding in there somewhere, behind all the grossness. Pasolini became a bit too over-the-top for my taste later in his career, so I prefer his earlier neorealist masterpieces like Mamma Roma and Accatone.

Whoops, that's "Trousers down, shirts up" not "Trousers up, shirts down". Mamma mia, che vergogna!

It's boring beyond belief, and so obviously fake.

I actually really love this movie. It is grotesque, yes, but the cinematography in it is stunning. Thematically, it really beats the viewer over the head—it's all about the potential horrors of unchecked political power, 1000x over—but I still find it a fascinating, utterly strange movie. There is also a plethora of gorgeous, young, naked Italian men onscreen throughout it, which is possibly worth the price of admission, depending on who you are.

I prefer Querelle (1982, directed by Fassbinder).

It’s much too long. Maybe the director was trying to give some numbing sense of isolation... but it seems to drag on FOREVER.
There are scenes in it I’ll never forget, though. (For better or worse.)

I too have admittedly jacked off to a few scenes in this movie. I sought it out as a teenager for the notoriety/shock factor, but while actually watching it ended up more focused on the male nudity and explicit sex scenes. At the time, it was one of the few movies I'd seen that showed full-on gay sex. I still find this scene hot—the top is beautiful (though he appears to be wearing an oversized prosthetic dick).

It's one of the few films that I still think is genuinely shocking. I admit I could not watch the last five minutes (which include a scene of a young woman being scalped in close-up). The special effects may look unconvincing these days, but it convinced me plenty. I will say that I think the film is a misinterpretation of Sade's message and aesthetic and I would not equate Italian Fascism with Sadean philosophy, which was about the dead-end of libertarianism.
Sade is, for me, a cautionary writer.
Also, for all the beautiful young men and women in this thing it is about as sexy as watching a root canal.

The over the top hysterics cover the real sinister darkness that's fascism. Once the authorities and the Church were on to him they had Pasolini murdered, I'm sure of that.

I've actually been to Pasolini's murder site. Is that weird?
|by Anonymous||reply 18||07/31/2020|
I think what’s weird is we had a Salo thread a few months ago. Is this movie really that beloved??
I mean, ick.

I hated the obvious fake dicks but liked moments of the film.

Trust us to zero in on what really matters to us: the dicks.

The camp aspect of old glamorous bitches (whose heyday was the 1930s) telling their Sadean stories dressed to the nines does it for me.

Anyone see the film "Pasolini" (2019), the biopic starring Willem Dafoe? Is it good? Should I stream it?

My favorite film, by far.

I've been desensitized by the internet so it doesn't really shock me. I skip through the poop scenes. It's not unwatchable to the point where I have to look away to avoid wretching, if someone sat me down and forced me to watch it I could probably get through it without gagging, but it's just gross to me to the point where it isn't even funny so I don't bother with watching it.
Some of the scenes are hot. Others are boring. It's campy, sadistic fun. It didn't have nearly enough sodomy for me but it was still alright.

I saw it in a London in 1988 at an underground theatre. I think it was banned there at the time

Speaking of shockers, how many have seen Larry Clark's film Ken Park? It was never theatrically released, I believe.

I hate it how this film usually gets grouped with crappy films like "The Human Centipede", "Cannibal Holocaust" etc. Unlike those other icky films "Salo" actually has something interesting to say and the production values are top notch; Morricone's main theme alone is worth the cash.

I saw "Ken Park" in a fleapit in Paris about 15 years ago. Visalia, CA never looked more deplorable. The piss and cum shots only added to the miserabilism of it all.

I just watched the 2019 film. Dafoe was terrific, as expected—he’s our most underappreciated actor. The film itself was fine, with some interesting parts. I liked the interview scene the best.
