Preston Sturges Does Story Of O
I first saw FLOWER AND SERPENT in the eighties at the Thalia. It was part of a wonderful film series on Japanese B-movies—movies regular Japanese folks see, not artsy Kurosawa flicks. Several audience members walked out in disgust within the first few minutes, but I stayed, fascinated. It was the first—and still only—Japanese bondage comedy I had ever seen.
A young, sexually impotent salaryman lives at home with his dominating—literally— mother. She produces "kinbaku" (bondage) movies in the basement to make ends meet. When the salaryman's boss discovers stills from the mother's work in the salaryman's desk, the boss mistakenly assumes the salaryman is a "nawashi" (bondage master) and orders him to kidnap and train the boss's sexually unresponsive wife. Complications ensue when the wife and salaryman fall in love with each other.
Synopsis / Plot
The opening scene of the movie is highly significant – and indeed, the very first shot of the movie: it depicts the main female protagonist, Aiko, chomping her lunch out of a red plastic lunch box. For some reason which is never explained, she is mute; a 35-year-old bowling alley worker who has a giant crush on a young, handsome, moped-riding mailman named Yoshio. She forces him to become involved with her by knocking down his bike and stealing the post, much like a 12-year-old might try to engage someone’s romantic interest.
Cult director Koji Wakamatsu (famous abroad for titles such as "Go, Go Second Time Virgin") returns to helm the sixth in this perversely entertaining series. A Kabukicho gigolo with a gambling debt Mikio Osawa agrees to bump off a rich wife's husband for a bundle of cash, but botches the hit. On the run in the snow-covered hills of northern Japan, he holes up in a shuttered, deserted house. But the house is not empty: a timid, traumatized girl Mika Ito lives there, in the thrall of a sick, hot-tempered trucker Shiro Sano who has kept her there since she was a tiny girl. Osawa tries hard but looks out of his depth here, as veteran Sano and 23-year-old ingenue Ito build an all-too-believable, monstrous relationship as sadistic paternal pervert and terrified tremulous child. File under guilty pleasure.
Young women are being abducted by a gang of modern day slave traders, only to be prepared as exclusive sex toys for their â€œbusiness relationsâ€�. When some of the girls try to escape from their prison, the gang retaliates in a brutal and vicious way.
A young man breaks into a nurses' rooming house and one-by-one kills off the nurses therein. In the tradition of Wakamatsu's other Pinku eiga(Pink Films), there is lots of sexuality and nudity. However most of the actual murders take place off screen.
Like many films of this nature, Violated Angels was called anti-feminist and misogynistic. In Film As A Subversive Art, a book on underground cinema, Amos Vogel praises Wakamatsu's artistic talent, yet pans the film for its "...anti-feminist sadism which is not based on any ideological explanation and finally contributes misanthropic flavour to his work."
Can a gritty, no-exit gangster movie brimming with hardcore sex and degradation also be a tender love story filled with poetic dialogue and an experimental arthouse feature? The answer, of course, is no, but Tokyo Elegy, from South African underground filmmaker Ian Kerkhof, swings for the fences in its effort to stitch all of those elements together in its 90-minute running time. And while the end result is frequently confusing and more than a little pretentious, it’s never boring.
Dutch actor Thom Hoffman (Dogville) plays Jack, a criminal on the lam after killing a pair of cops. He runs into porn actress Keiko (played by real-life Japanese porn star Mai Hoshino) in a bar, and after banging her brains out in the bathroom (a poster for Kerkhof’s film Wasted! adorns one wall), he moves into her apartment to hide out. The pair quickly falls into a round-the-clock routine of drugs and fucking, but the romance has a time limit; Jack has apparently ratted out a former partner, and the local yakuza plan to settle the score within seven days. As his final days slowly wind down, Jack attempts to do good by helping Keiko deal with her childhood memories of sexual abuse.
This must be the funniest pink cinema movie there is. The humor borders on insane, in the tradition set by the movieVistor Q. The highlights include cockroaches, athletic sex, cucumber penetration, and airborne semen.
Synopsis (taken from here)
Japanese cult cinema icon Takashi Ishii (Evil Dead Trap, Gonin) directs this erotic drama concerning an ageing husband who goes to unusual lengths to ensure his wife's sexual satisfaction. Soon after Tooyama begins to suffer from performance problems in the bedroom, his marriage to Shizuko takes a turn for the worse. Though he cannot pleasure his wife personally, Tooyama eventually realizes that watching his wife engage in sadomasochistic games with others can be just as much fun for both of them. Later, as Tooyama grows increasingly comfortable watching his wife explore her sexuality with other men, the unusually generous husband hires a skilled artist to capture the erotic encounters on canvas.
Empty room is a dark, highly erotic tale of a married couple whose relationship is slowly sliding into oblivion. Bored and sexually frustrated, the wife begins taking lovers while her unemployed husband spends his days wandering aimless around the city parks.
A young woman gets raped by three thugs on her wedding night while her husband is forced to watch. He then tell her to leave because his honor has been violated. She attempts to commit suicide, but a priest talks her out of it and she decides to become a nun. Once inside the convent, she is again a victim of sexual abuse.
Mitsuru Meike - Hatsujô kateikyôshi: sensei no aijiru AKA The Glamorous Life Of Sachiko Hanai (2003)
A riotous amalgam of political satire, apocalyptic comedy and steamy erotica, The Glamorous Life of Sachiko Hanai is an insanely entertaining example of the Japanese pink film (pinku eiga) genre, a popular form of erotic softcore cinema. Titillation is, of course, a primary goal, but due to Japan's censorship codes (no depiction of genitalia or penetration is allowed), creative storytelling is also important. When both factors are present, as in this memorably nutty offering, the result is particularly pleasurable. Sachiko Hanai (Emi Kuroda) is an escort who specializes in teacher-student scenarios (the film's delightfully apposite original title is Horny Home Tutor: Teacher's Love Juice). One day, after an energetic tutoring session, Sachiko adjourns to a nearby café. An argument between two men escalates, and she is shot between the eyes. Miraculously only dazed, she grabs a mysterious cylinder from the café floor, thus making off with a clone of George W. Bush's finger. And then things get really weird. Sachiko discovers odd psychic abilities and begins imagining various theories of the universe and multivalent philosophical speculations, all to the throb of techno. While she pursues arcane poststrucuturalist knowledge—and has intellectual intercourse with a political philosopher—a consortium of bad guys chase her in the hopes of recovering the cylinder. Raunchy and hilarious in equal measures, with a dash of smart political commentary, Mitsuru Meike's memorable feature will undoubtedly tickle you pink.

Pierfrancesco Campanella's first giallo (also his directorial debut). The plot is about a series of murders among homosexuals, but the erotic element is mostly represented in heterosexual couplings, so no worries there. Starring the always excellent Tomas Arana, with Alida Vali, Gioia Scola, Lorenzo Flaherty, Natasha Hovey and Barbara Scoppa.

After a breakfast of LSD and hitchhikers, The Takers--two berserk bikers--decide to go upscale when they spot suburban housewife Laura and bachelorette Barbi, follow them to Laura's home, and invite themselves in: "We're gonna have us a party with some educated social-type broads!" And party they do until Laura's hubbie unexpectedly shows up to settle things with some shotgun vengeance and... well, one of the goofiest, most startling endings of any motion picture!
An intentionally campy film designed to capitalize on Linda Lovelace's sudden fame following "Deep Throat", this film centers around Linda's fictional grass roots campaign to run for president. Touring the country with a rag-tag team of strange and wacky people, hilarity supposedly ensues at every stop

When I first sat down to watch this movie I thought it was going to be a strightforward crime movie. Boy was I wrong. After I realized that it was a soft-porno I was like any other guy getting really excited over women bearing all. But between the sex scenes I noticed that this was more than just another porno, it actually had a plot. Another thing that surprised me was that Allie (Samm Croft) did a fair job as an actress. Samm Croft and Renee Rea are also very hot women, especially at the end when both of them got down with their respective mates. The Movie: B The Women: A+

Teenagers pack a van full of beer and go on the road in search of sexual adventures.
14 December 2007 | by lazarillo (Denver, Colorado and Santiago, Chile)
This is a rather schizoid movie as is evidenced by its two alternate titles "Blue Summer" on one hand, or "Love Truck", on the other. At times this seems like a typically stupid and painfully unfunny early 70's softcore sex romp with a lot of idiotic and unrealistic situations and some pretty unappealing actresses. The movie follows a pretty typical formula--two guys who have just graduated high school go off on a road trip in a customized van looking some female action, and fall into all kinds of increasingly absurd, but not particularly funny situations--and, of course, they have a lot of sex on the way.
