Rick Castro’s second monthly Fetish Film Nights is this Friday evening at the Egyptian Theater– but this time, due to the overflow crowd last month for the first FFN in the small Spielberg Theater, he’s moving into the 616-seat Rigler Theater for a screening of Pier Paolo Pasolini’s raunchy classic, Salo, 120 Days of Sodom.
Be prepared, Salo is not for the squeamish or the weak of heart as it tours with cold, in-your-face precision through a deluge of sexual and psychological atrocities rained upon a group of young men and women held hostage in a stunning villa by a group of depraved nobles at the end of WWII. Think sumptuous locales, haute couture costume design and complete sexual madness and kinky abandon.
Castro, owner and curator of Antebellum Gallery, the fetish art emporium on Las Palmas around the corner from the Egyptian, will lead a discussion after the film.
Last month’s Fetish Film Nights screening of Maitresse saw a spirited talk about BDSM culture. This Friday will probably play along the same lines, like another titillating night out at the movies. Bring a date– or even find one there.
Salo, 120 Days of Sodom; Friday Oct. 17th, 7:30 PM; at the Egyptian Theater, 6712 Hollywood Blvd. at Las Palmas, Los Angeles 90028
