Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom (1975)

Banned in many countries, this profoundly upsetting Italian film, based on Dante’s Divine Comedy, is about wealthy, fascist elites who kidnap and sadistically humiliate teenagers.

Yes, director Pier Paolo Pasolini has a point to make about authoritarianism, but you’ll find yourself saying “basta” long before the movie is over.
