Here we go again
*Sigh* Leave it to us Finns to take a stupid idea, blow it out of proportion and try to market it as cool. Lordi is a mediocre band at best, and a single gimmick will get you only so far.
To all you marketing idiots out there: this is the reason for the inherent minority complex that is often encountered when Finland tries to export something.
Lordi isn't scary. Lordi is lame. Lordi is OVER.
I want to apologize to the rest of the world for this plastic-faced idiocy. Sure, they won the Eurovision.
No, wait - they won the Eurovision. That's it. I rest my case.
Salo was banned in Finland until recently. I have read that it was close to passing the strict censorship at the time of its making due to its cinematic merit. I can see why it was banned and why it almost wasn't.
Definitely not one for the faint-hearted, Salo is a portrait of moral decay and corruption, and of fascism, an allegory of a society under a brutal regime of madmen and paranoia.
My advice for those viewing this would be to try and see beyond the sickening and oppressive images and finding the depiction of anxiety and a testimony of troubled times, lashing out in this powerful way.
