Re: Takashi Ishii thread (A Night in Nude: Salvation etc.)

The new artworks are nowhere near as good as the original dvd-releases... If this flyer (which came with my copy of the "director's long version" of SWEET WHIP) is to be trusted, the ugly keepcases at least come housed in a pretty cardboard box with Takashi Ishii artwork. http://i58.tinypic.com/63v...

Re: Yoshihiro Nishimura's next film

Outstanding news! The short films he has done since HELLDRIVER have left me pretty cold. I'd be interested in him trying something a little different this time. I'd love a return to the charmingly strange style of SPEAKERMAN THE BOO, for example. I also really want to see him direct his feature film...

Re: Hana-Dama (Lolita Vibrator Torture director, 2014)

That's a surprisingly quick (for Japan) DVD release. A definite pre-order for me.

Did the theatrical screenings garner any reviews?

Anyone seen this? Been considering buying the dvd for a long time, right now it's cheap, but I'm not too sure about the film anymore. Sawada was very interesting in the early/mid 70's (Retreat though the Wet Wasteland, 1973 ; Assault, 1976) but in the late 70's he was directing tired formulaic Yusa...

Do you mean 夢犯 (1985), with the Takashi Ishii screenplay? I've been meaning to track that down on VHS eventually, same as ルージュ (1984).

I know the films, but the amount of CGI blood and shaky cam in the trailers kept me at bay. Have you see any of the films?

I've watched the whole film now and I think the way it works is that pubic hair is fine if it is only shown as "nudity", by which I mean that there is no sexual activity.
