Salò or The Hundred and Twenty Days of Sodom (Salò o Le centoventi giornate di Sodoma, 1975) is one of the most controversial and scandalous films ever made. It was Pier Paolo Pasolini's last film; he was murdered shortly after completing it. An adaptation of Sade's vicious masterpiece, but relocated to Fascist-ruled Italy, Salò is an unflinching, violent portrayal of sexual cruelty which many find too disturbing to watch. But insightful artworks are often disturbing. Beneath the extreme, taboo-breaking surface of Salò, Gary Indiana argues, is a deeply penetrating account of human behavior that resonates not only as an account of fascism but as a picture of the corporate, morally compromised world we live in today.

The film is noted for exploring the themes of political corruption, abuse of power, sadism, perversion, sexuality, and fascism. Although it remains a controversial film to this day, it has been praised by various film historians and critics, and while not typically considered a horror fil...

Die Macht Des Grotesken Dekonstruktion Des Kulturellen Wertesystems Im Film Sal Oder Die 120 Tage Von Sodom

In der vorliegenden Arbeit werden sowohl die möglichen Ursachen, als auch die schwerwiegenden Folgen der Destruktion für das „westliche“ kulturelle Wertesystem untersucht. Die Parallelen zwischen dem Grotesken und der Kultur werden erläutert und anschließend werden der Anteil und die Mechanismen des Grotesken in der „Dekonstruktion der Kultur“ anhand des letzten Films von Pier Paolo Pasolini Salò oder die 120 Tage von Sodom (1975) untersucht. Da das Phänomen des Grotesken sehr abstrakt ist und eine eindeutige Definition des Grotesken ausgeschlossen ist, wird die „Abjekttheorie“ als eine Brücke zum besseren Verständnis des Grotesken benutzt. Durch die neuere Forschung, welche dem Grotesken einen abstrakten und breiten Sinn gibt, eignet sich Pasolinis Salò als Beispiel für die Dekonstruktion von kulturellen Strukturen durch das Groteske hervorragend. Die abstrakte Bindung zwischen dem Grotesken und der Liquidierung kultureller Ordnung, sowie die filmische Darstellung dessen wird untersucht. Das Groteske in Salò wird aus psychoanalytischer und soziokultureller Sicht gleichermaßen behandelt, obwohl die beiden Bereiche nicht immer scharf getrennt werden können.

Excerpt: Eyes Wide Shut is a 1999 drama film based upon the 1926 novella Traumnovelle (Dream Story), which was written by Arthur Schnitzler. The film was directed, produced and co-written by Stanley Kubrick, and was his last film. The story, set in and around New York City, follows the sexually-charged adventures of Dr. Bill Harford, who is shocked when his wife, Alice, reveals that she had contemplated an affair a year earlier. He embarks on a night-long adventure, during which he infiltrates a massive masked orgy of an underground cult. The film appeared on July 16, 1999, to generally positive critical reaction. This was the last film to be directed by Stanley Kubrick before his death in 1999, and its actual release was posthumous. Although generally well-received by critics, the film proved controversial due to its strong sexual content, and its distributor Warner Bros. digitally altered several scenes during post-production to ensure an R-Rating in the United States and Canada. In early versions, the soundtrack featured during the masked orgy is part of a Romanian Orthodox Divine Liturgy recorded in a church in Baia Mare, played backwards. This was altered or removed in subsequent releases. The film also holds the Guinness World Record for the longest constant movie shoot, at 400 days. Dr....

Chapters: Sal, or the 120 Days of Sodom, Themes in Avatar, V for Vendetta, Pan's Labyrinth, Themes in Minority Report, Technologies in Minority Report, The Spirit of the Beehive, It Happened Here, Berlin 36, Caterpillar, Torn Memories of Nanjing. Excerpt: The 2009 American science fiction film Avatar has earned widespread success, becoming the highest-grossing film so far. The blockbuster has provoked vigorous discussion of a wide variety of cultural, social, political, and religious themes identified by critics and commentators, and the film's writer and director James Cameron has responded that he hoped to create an emotional reaction and to provoke public conversation about these topics. The broad range of Avatar's intentional or perceived themes has prompted reviewers to call it "an all-purpose allegory" and "the season's ideological Rorschach blot." One reporter even suggested that the politically charged punditry has been "misplaced" reviewers should have seized on the opportunity to take "a break from their usual fodder of public policy and foreign relations" rather than making an ideological battlefield of this "popcorn epic." Discussion has centered around such themes as the conflict between modern man and nature, and the film's treatment of imperialism, racism, militarism and patriotism, corporate greed, property rights, and spirituality and religion. Commentators have debated whether the film's treatment of the human aggression against the native Na'vi is a message of support for indigenous peoples today, or is, instead, a tired retelling of the racist myth of the noble savage. Right-wing critics accused Cameron of pushing an "anti-American" message in the film's depiction of a private military contractor that used ex-Marines to attack the natives, while Cameron and others argued ...

Italian novelist, poet, and filmmaker Pier Paolo Pasolini was brutally killed in Rome in 1975, a macabre end to a career that often explored humanity’s capacity for violence and cruelty. Along with the mystery of his murderer’s identity, Pasolini left behind a controversial but acclaimed oeuvre as well as a final quartet of beguiling projects that signaled a radical change in his aesthetics and view of reality. The Resurrection of the Body is an original and compelling interpretation of these final works: the screenplay Saint Paul, the scenario for Porn-Theo-Colossal, the immense and unfinished novel Petrolio, and his notorious final film, Salò or the 120 Days of Sodom, a disturbing adaptation of the writings of the Marquis de Sade. Together these works, Armando Maggi contends, reveal Pasolini’s obsession with sodomy and its role within his apocalyptic view of Western society. One of the first studies to explore the ramifications of Pasolini’s homosexuality, The Resurrection of the Body also breaks new ground by putting his work into fruitful conversation with an array of other thinkers such as Freud, Strindberg, Swift, Henri Michaux, and Norman O. Brown.
