Maya Calle — Sunsets, Skeletons, and Hippy Hoppy Hats!

Not for the faint of heart. The poster advertises book adaptations into cinema, and the careful observer will note that (among adaptions of Orwell, Conrad, and Hemingway) on 19 July (19 de Julio), the Marquis de Sade´s infamous book, 120 Days of Sodomy, will be adapted to film. Having read the book myself, and knowing it to be little more than an imprisoned Frenchman´s peculiar and pornographic fantasy — in which there are pages upon pages of kidnappings, rapes, orgies, religious blasphemies, and murders — one may safely wonder, “Huh?”
