    1) The delicious black comedy 2) The performances of Ewan McGregor, Kerry Fox, and Christoper Eccleston 3) Danny Boyle's slyly creepy directorial debut.

    This movie was awesome. I would like to see more Danny Boyle films make it on the Criterion Collection.

    The only Danny Boyle movie worth watching.

      Are you implying that SALO is NOT better than Danny Boyle movies?

      I'm not foolish enough to side with Cotten's attitude, but Albert I believe 28 Days Later and Trainspotting are both pretty damn good movies. Also, leave the great Pier Palo out of this please.

      I think Trainspotting has it all over anything else Boyle has done. (I only wish it had come with subtitles.)

    It does not matter what he is implying, for comparing the two would be futile and quite childish. This is being said without mentioning that you are comparing a single Pasolini film to Boyle's oeuvre. Different ideas, styles, and philosophies are put forth in each film and you would be ridiculous to deny this. Also, to discredit Danny Boyle's directing would be to betray a narrow and poor taste.

    The fact that Shallow Grave (one of my all-time favorite films, EVAR!) is getting the Criterion treatment gives me hope that Richard Linklater's "Before Sunrise/Before Sunset" films will get a Criterion release as well. I'm overjoyed for this release! Bravo, Criterion!

      I'm with you there. I'd be ecstatic if Before Sunrise/Sunset were released.

    I agree with both Sid & Patrick. Both of those films were fantastic.

    For a minute, I thought DJ Qualls was in this movie. Looks good though.
