SALÒ, OR THE 120 DAYS OF SODOM
SALÒ, O LE 120 GIORNATE DI SODOMA
1975, Park Circus/MGM, 117 min, Italy/France, Dir: Pier Paolo Pasolini

Be prepared, SALÒ is not for the weak of heart. The polar opposite of the "Trilogy of Life," SALÒ depicts with cold precision the sexual and psychological atrocities visited on 16 young men and women, held hostage by a group of depraved nobles at the end of WWII. Pasolini based the film on a notorious book by the Marquis de Sade but shifted the locale to the town of Salo, where Pasolini’s brother was killed during the war (and where he himself was arrested by the Nazis). One of the most controversial and widely censored films ever made (it took over 25 years for the uncut version to screen in England), SALÒ has lost none of its power to shock and disturb. With Paolo Bonacelli, Giorgio Cataldi, Umberto Quintavalle. In Italian with English subtitles.


FASTER, PUSSYCAT! KILL! KILL!
1966, RM Films, 83 min, USA, Dir: Russ Meyer

The ultimate Russ Meyer paean to big breasts, aggressive females and ultra-violence. A trio of hard-drinking, car-racing, do-anything-for-kicks strippers, led by the robustly exotic Tura Satana, terrorize everyone in sight, including poor waif Susan Bernard and twisted rich cripple Stuart Lancaster. The voluptuous villainesses are finally consumed by greed, lust and hate in an orgy of bloodthirsty self-destruction. Achingly funny and exhilarating from start to slam-bang finish in one of the true masterpieces of 1960s pop cinema. With an amazing score by unsung greats Paul Sawtell and Bert Shefter. Also starring Lori Williams and Haji.
