So unless you can start pointing me to specific sources that relate stories of Sade-like abuses by officials during the Salo days, and I'm never adverse to educating myself further, then I consider the issue closed.

Yeah, Quint, Salo and Caligula would have made a hell of a pair of movies to watch for a festival.
CST erases images from head by palimpsest. Call me weak-willed or what not, for me there's a line between art and gratuitousness. The uncut version is banned here in Australia. Instead of not wanting to ever seeing it again, I put it right back on when it was over. And who says what movies are important? Haven't seen it in years, but I remember thinking, for all the money they spent, many scenes and many sets looked cheap.
