I had never seen it until today and I can't believe the stuff they have in this flick... some of it really shocking... some of it should not be on Youtube, but it is... if you've seen it, your thougths, opinions?
Yeah I think there was a time when art films of the 1970s and 1980s were big on freedom of expression and went for the shock value - I don't think I have seen full movie but have seen clips from it and heard a lot about it - I always have my doubts about movies who use controversy or extreme action to sell the film - If a film cannot stand on the merits of the story and relies on the stage smoke of erotica that raises a red flag for me.
Yeah, saw it few years ago. Kind of surprising the names that were involved - Malcolm McDowell, Peter O'Toole, John Gielgud, Helen Mirren. It is pretty intense - rape, gay sex, fisting, infanticide, castration. Just like the old days.
