This experimental film by the maverick Italian director Carmelo Bene is a free adaptation of Oscar Wilde's play Salome and is even more irreverent than the original. In this film, Bene carries the New Testament story beyond the incident with Herod, and pictures Christ nailing himself to the cross, unable (of course) to finish the task. This film uses many musical and filmic special effects and includes at least one pornographic sequence and a number of sadistic ones. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The subversive surreal pic, a revolt against convention, can be loved or hated for its perversions, but though there are many versions of Salome none are as strange."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
