Pasolini’s final film, Salò, is his most disturbing, and also one of the most notorious films ever made. Based on the book by the Marquis de Sade, it’s an allegorical critique of fascism and consumerism that depicts the sexual, mental, and emotional torture of a group of teenage boys and girls by wealthy Italian fascists over the course of 120 brutal days. The film was completed just weeks before Pasolini’s mysterious murder in Ostia, Italy. (114 mins., 35mm)
