Banned, censored and reviled the world over since its release, Salò was Pasolini's final and most controversial masterpiece. The content and imagery is extreme, retaining the power to shock, repel and distress. But it remains a cinematic milestone: culturally significant, politically vital and visually stunning.
On 30 September 2019 the BFI will release Salò on Blu-ray utilising a High Definition master new to the UK. Special features for this release include a new commentary by Kat Ellinger.
Based on a novel by the Marquis de Sade, Salò is a film about power, corruption, and the degradation of the human body; a devastating, angry cry from one of the most controversial auteurs in cinema history.
