... you can learn from:
Salò, or 120 Days of Sodom (1975)
The President: Homage to the rear templeis often more fervent than the other.
Criterion is having a flash sale today and in a weird coincidence -- it being Pasolini's birthday today also -- the first title I clicked on over on their site happened to be this movie. Perhaps tis meant to be. I haven't watched Salò since seeing it on the big screen at FSLC many years back... it's not really one you rush to re-watch, as effective as I found it. Have any of you watched this movie more than once? Are there any movies you'll refuse to watch more than once? Oh man, I have several. Perhaps I should make a list! Anyway Pasolini was born 97 years ago today -- what sort of a party should we have in 2022 for his centennial? I dare to even imagine...
