Re: What general film/series have you just seen.. marks out of 5

What Have They Done to Your Daughters (Italy, 1974) [BD] - 3.5/5 Cynical follow-up to What Have You Done to Solange sees schoolgirls in peril again. This one, however, trades away all the romanticism and is also more of a poliziotteschi that giallo. Effective and political, but also depressingly da...

Re: What Have You Just Ordered or Received?

By some miracle, I actually received my Perversion Story BD today. By miracle I say, because I spent three weeks wondering what on earth is USPS doing with my package? https://sketchesofcinema.files.wordpress.com/2018/09/usps1.jpg I bet they thought "Japan" was some small town in California and didn...

Re: What asian film/series have you just seen.. marks out of 5

Have they ever collected this series as a box set? Nope, and knowing Toei, if they had it'd cost more than the individual releases... Now seen parts 1-5, of which no 2 is my favourite. Part 1 is awful but I have to watch it again because of a Teruo Ishii Abnormal Love article I'm working on... I gu...

Hot Springs Geisha 3 (温泉こんにゃく芸者) (Japan, 1970) [DVD] - 2/5 This is a step back in the wrong direction after the wild and entertaining part 2. Somehow it's a whole lot tamer as well. A small town girl (newcomer Miwako Onaya) becomes a geisha to make money to send home. There are some minor points of...

The Predator (USA, 2018) [DCP] - 3/5 This feels like something scripted by two Predator loving kids in the late 80s or early 90s throwing "You know what'd be cool?" and "What if?" ideas at each other - in a good way. Messy but fun sci-fi action has great monster design, a decent "predator squad" (i...

Akira (アキラ) (Japan, 1988) [35mm] - 4.5/5 My 3rd time seeing this in 35mm, as amazing as always. It seems I'm always in Tokyo when Akira screens, and of course I had to go this time as well since I was in town. It's a good print save for a few scratches but the sound was a bit shrill this time aroun...

You've seen Lone Wolf + Cub and Seven Samurai in 35mm? That must have been amazing! :D
Yes, and yes :D

For Lone Wolf, parts 1, 2 and 5 only.

Actually all Lone Wolf films will screen in Tokyo in 35mm again in Laputa Asagaya in Oct-Nov.

Hot Springs Geisha 2 (温泉ポン引女中) (1969) The first Hot Springs Geisha (1968) film, a harmless sex comedy and one of Teruo Ishii's dullest efforts, only managed to sneak in one or two brief topless shots. This sequel does more in the opening credits scene alone. It's a skin flick in and out, but thankf...
