      In perhaps the most controversial film ever released in the 1970s, four men of power in Nazi Germany (the Duke, the Bishop, the Magistrate, and the President) are preparing to wed their own daughters for a debauched ritual. They decide to kidnap nine young

      men and nine young women and force them to participate with four middle-aged prostitutes in many exploitation rituals from which they derive pleasure from.

      The film covers the many days which these eighteen young men and women have to bare and experience at the palace. They must endure many sessions of sex acts that produce more pain than pleasure. Some of these acts are beyond gross and include elements of B.D.S.M. such as a ...

      • scene where one of the women are forced to eat the Duke’s feces, as well as a scene where all of them are forced to eat lots of it for supper. Those who refuse to participate with every request and demand are subjected to severe and unimaginably painful torture, for instance: through branding, cutting tongues and eyes, scalping, and even murdered.

        This is where “Saw” meets “Eyes Wide Shut” and “Schindler’s List” at a

        bizarre and grotesque BDSM/fetish convention. “Salo” treats sexuality as something devoid of any pleasure, intrigue, or allure and it does so in the absence of no privacy whatsoever. When it comes to the scenes in question, “Salo” is certainly not for the faint of heart. The final scene of the film looks like a moment right out of “Eyes Wide Shut” with all the symbolism, homosexuality, and waltz that you can dance along with.
