Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom

Who has seen it?
I really recommend it to anyone (who feels prepared to it).

One of those films I would read about at school but always been too scared to watch.

Like The Exorcist. Which is probably just daft bollocks these days.

Well, it’s not… scary, but pretty disturbing.

Yeah I have

Impact was lessened by one of the guys looking like Zak Dingle

yer man on the right

It’s not really very good. Basically just “look at me being unpleasant.”

Think my eyes would water by the 4th or 5th day tbh

Pretty much an expression of pure rage which he was eventually killed for. I’d say it’s an important film if not a great one.

It’s one of those films that couldn’t possible live up to its reputation. Horrible, horrible things happen in it, but they’re mostly viewed from a distance, so it can hardly be called pornographic. But it moves at a very slow pace and goes on for a little too long.

Like Eric said - important but not great. Very good way of putting it.
