We are on the set of "Salò or the 120 days of Sodom". Pasolini lets a small camera team led by the journalist Gideon Bachmann follow him around engaging him in a long and extraordinary interview/conversation. The interview turns into a long, clear-sighted and violent attack on society that accompanies photos of the set in a surprising juxtaposition of film and reality, revealing Pasolini''s metaphorical portrait of modernity. Written by Giuseppe Bertolucci
 

Still quite a shocker, "Salo" was received by audiencess in 1975 as a staggering insult, and its producer, Alberto Grimaldi, put on trial (and absolved) for corruption of minors and obscenity. Inspired De Sade''s novel, script by Pasolini and Sergio Citti (who was originally scheduled to direct) is set in during the final months of Italian fascism. In Bachmann''s interview, the director speaks more about general ideas than about the film''s themes of power, violence and mortification of the body, which are impressively captured by Beer''s often electrifying still images.
