A film that has had quite an impact on me, Pasolini's "Salo" could be described one of the most important films about fascist totalitarianism ever conceived. I had known that Pasolini was rather eccentric, but the drastic brutality he depicted is unprecedented.
After seeing Salo, I completely understand why Pasolini was assassinated. Sad story.

They ceased production on the Criterion disk of Salo.

Why did they do that?

Why have certain Criterion titles been taken out of print? Will they ever be back in print?

All unavailable Criterion titles were taken out of print solely due to rights issues. Our distribution licenses expired and, despite our best efforts, we were unable to renew. Should Criterion ever recover the DVD rights to any of our out-of-print titles, we will surely re-release them.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

I caught Salo uncut on TV once. Yeah, we've got a great public tv chanel but the government is currently fucking it up cause it has low ratings.

anyway, what a pervert!

What's the best way to actually see this movie?  I missed it when it played the Gene Siskel Film Center here in Chicago last week....

Is there a non-Criterion DVD?  Where would I be able to get it on video?

Maybe Amazon.com has the VHS?  I know there's a region 2 DVD, if you can play that.  Local independent video stores might have a copy of the VHS for rent.

I saw his "Arabian Nights."  That's got to be one of the worst movies I have ever seen.

I saw his Decameron at a cineclub in a small venue filled with senior citizens, and maybe it was because they all were very receptive to it but i thought it was hilarious...

Is Salo Pasolini's so called masterpiece? Cause that's what alot of people have said. I've only seen Salo and couldn't get through finishing it, cause it made me feel really uncomfortable (this was when I was 14 though and I may view it differently now, seeing as how i'm older and more mature) but recently found a subtitled vhs copy at a garage sale and snatched it up but don't really feel like finishing it. Can anyone recommend something else from him that I can watch before continuing the endurance test that is Salo?

To answer your question though, either Salo or The Gospel According to St. Matthew

and no I couldn't figure out how to set that up the right way
