Why... why does this movie exist...
This shit actually made me barf! It actually made me barf! I haven't seen the movie, I haven't seen the book, I watched this review, and I fucking barfed.
My GOD! This is the most disturbing episode of Cinema Snob I've ever seen.
I know this movie is sometimes proclaimed to be a work of art, but dude, I can't handle a movie where people eat shit, eat bread with nails in them, and get tortured to death.
I understand that movies like this could be awesome. And I agree with The Snob that this movie is awesome in it's nature, but it's still disturbing.
I don't get disturbed by a lot of things, and neither does The Snob, but I think it's interesting that even he shows that he's disturbed by it. That's really cool in my book.
Hey I haven't seen the movie... but my stomach really doesn't want to. It's worried I might puke it out.
I heard it's based off of a book, and I heard the book is even worse than the movie... I'm not brave enough Snob... I'll admit it, I am not fucking brave enough to tackle such a novel.
Like I'm not saying the movie is bad, the movie is good, it gives the viewer an experience and that's all that matters. I'm just saying that I'm scared I might throw up from watching it. And I'm scared the book might give me nightmares... terrible terrible nightmares.
Guys, guys, guys, you're all underestimating "120 Days of Sodom", the book is far worse.
I particularly, when watching the movie, couldn't help myself to think how much details were left behind, of course, some details should necessarily be summarized but the movie show about some 10% of this work of Marquis de Sade and for some reason added a lot of things that weren't necessary, for instance, the Président's jokes, lol to then by the way...
I don't even know if I should watch this review. I looked up GIFs of this movie and I found two and I felt so much dread watching them. They were only a few seconds long and nothing too bad but I still felt like my soul was being sucked out. Uuuuugh. Why God...why. This is just so fucked up, kay? It's one thing if this was consensual, that these people wanted to be treated this way, but it was against their will! That's the fucked up thing about it. Some people do like shit and piss, being tortured or verbally and physically abused, it turns them on, strangely enough, but they're still in control and can call off the "nightmare" when they've had enough. But no this is just...ugh. I need to go scrub my skin with some steel wool now.
Having read the actual novel.. I have to say its probably the worst thing put to paper.. but still and yes I will sound like a freaking asshole saying this... The book was better (here meaning worse) then the movie.
No joke - I actually love this movie (and I hated the novel it was based on), largely because of the acting - especially from the dude who also appears in Caligula - and just how thought provoking the movie really is...
...Not one I frequently watch though - mostly due to the pacing and the length.
Was pointed to this by the AT4W movie, but the video doesn't work. Can we get an updated video link?
I second this notion!
Some of the older archived videos of 2009 were brought over from the youtube account before thecinemasnob.com was created, so please forgive the lesser video quality of such as some did not transfer well.
