Episode 63: Salo or The 120 Days of Sodom

Special Guest: David Pendleton

Pier Paolo Pasolini's controversial, shocking, and darkly comical artsploitation flick, Salo (or The 120 Days of Sodom) is based on a work by the Marquis de Sade transplanted to fascist Italy.

We're joined this week by co-host Fräulein von B as we chat about this heartwarming tale of elite men and women making friends with the local country boys and girls.

Warning: This episode contains some frank and potentially offensive language.

  1. "this heartwarming tale of elite men and women making friends with the local country boys and girls." That made me laugh.

    Downloaded this episode immediately as my feelings about this particular movie are pretty passionate.

  2. Great episode, as usual. Always great hearing women talking about artsplotation/trash/porn. Fräulein von B, Susie Bright, and Michelle Clifford were all super sharp and lively and full of fascinating info. Nice to see The Projection Booth bridging the sex gap in psychotronic cinema commentary.

    1. Bob,

      Thanks for the good nods. We look for great insights were we can find it! If we happen to be pushing past the usual male geek territory, that's great!

      CHEERS!
