Mad Bad and Better than Salo
20 December 2011 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Wild colourful kaleidoscope of a film ... Based on De Sade and managing much better than Pasolini to convey De Sade's ideas in my opinion ... Whereas Pasolini's Salo was just an escalating catalogue of abuse, here we get De Sades philosophy as an opposition to staid society with the humour and playfulness of the writing intact How can a film like Salo be called a success when the only people who are going to put themselves through such a nihilistic cinematic experience are people who are already of the same political view as the film maker ... Therefore in my view Salo is a complete failure as a film ... Whereas this covers all the same ideas ( although more emphasis is given to choice and denial which is a much more intrinsic part of De Sade which Pasolini ignored completely ) and has fun with them ... In a crazy sixties hallucinatory fashion The philosophy is there ... Maybe a few few people began to question life more after seeing it ... You never know Just wish we could see a restored version as what is around now even on DVD leaves a lot to be desired And lets be honest ... No-one will ever look at squid quite the same again :))
