    I know that Pasolini's Salo is one of the most controversial movies ever made but I have a strange desire to see it. I know that the Criterion Collection DVD is long out of print and unavailable for sale or rent. The DVD is unavailable for rent at Netflix. Apparently, it is also unavailable on VHS and I get the impression this is not a title Blockbuster would carry(I've never seen it at any or our local stores). How does one get the opportunity to see this film? I may be sorry but I'm still looking to see this film at least once.

    I think if you were to get a region free DVD player that did PAL-to-NTSC conversion, you could order a non-Region 1 version of Salo.

    If you want a jaw-dropping experience, go to eBay and type "Salo" DVD into the Search! Those things go for big bucks!

    Wow, like $200 for the Criterion DVD...

    I tshould be available as a rental on VHS though, right?
