Movie Reviews

The Marquis de Sade Would be Proud of this Sadistic Tale
Mr Vic aka | Marion, IA USA | 09/26/2010
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Marquis de Sade, the real life 18th Century oddity for whom "sadism" is named, would give Pier Paolo Pasolini a pat on the back for making this controversial film set in Facist Italy in 1944. I, on the other hand, probably would not.

I did give this departure from reality that takes the form of an allegory 3 stars, however, for its sheer ingenuity, uniqueness and interesting take on the depravities humans are capable of inflicting on one another, no matter what time in history they occur.

If you are offended by viewing both heterosexual and homosexual rape and sexual degradation; torture and humiliation; nudity and vulgarity; and overall unrelenting disgusting behavior from adults toward children and adolescent teens, then this film certainly isn't for you. However, if you are open minded enough to simply view this as one man's opinion of the effects of Facist corruption brought to life via his unique artistic big screen fantasy, then give it a look. You might be shocked, but you certainly won't forget this story for a long time to come."
