Very enlightening

I guess one could say that the documentary on the making of Salo is better then the movie itself. The documentary will shed much light about the problems faced in filming a movie considered by many to be the most despicable of all time. Many things are revealed that may not seem obvious at first in just watching the movie Salo. Like how the child actors in the film are not actually children but young looking 16 year olds, which at the time, was not illegal to have them filmed naked for the movie even though it caused much outrage. Evidently this documentary is very rare but if you can track it down, it sheds much light on the film and director and actors involved in one of the most notorious films of all time....
