Exactly like the story from which Salo is derived from, De Sade's 120 Days of Sodom of course, I find the director of the film to be more interesting than the film, itself, just as I find the man, De Sade, to be more interesting than his actual stories. They were both outrageous personalities, and each of them were interned in their own ways - their horrific byproducts being ways of practically vandalizing the prison bathroom walls. With their own feces.
The man himself was definitely a character. Gorged himself to obesity, gets imprisoned several times and often gets kicked out for trying to seduce his younger male prison mates
When a wise man gives thee better counsel, give me mine again: I would have none but knaves follow it, since a fool gives it.
