The film is a loose adaptation of the book written in The Days of Sodom by the Marquis de Sade , set during World War II , and was Pasolini's final film, being released three weeks after his murder. The libertines kidnap 18 teenagers and subject them to four months of extreme violence, murder, sadism and sexual and mental torture. The film explores the themes of political corruption , consumerism , capitalism, nihilism , morality , abuse of power, social Darwinism , sadism, sexuality and fascism. Premiering at the Paris Film Festival on 23 November , the film had a brief theatrical run in Italy before being banned in January , and was released in the United States the following year on 3 October Because it depicts youths subjected to graphic violence, sadism , sexual deviance and brutal murder, the film was controversial upon its release and has remained banned in several countries into the 21st century. The confluence of thematic content in the film—ranging from the political and socio-historical, to psychological and sexual—has led to much critical discussion.

The purpose as stated by Sade is to allow the reader to 'pick whichever pleasures inflame them' - meaning that its stated purpose is pure eroticism although I'm not sure anyone could find this erotic. Alternately, reading this book could allow you some insight into Sade's life and philosophy , and encourage thought on the principles of libertinage that are laid plainly here.
But, truth be told, this book mostly feels like shock after shock - so I might give it a miss if it isn't your thing.
