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

Female Teacher: Boy Hunt (女教師 少年狩り) (Japan, 1975) [VoD] - 2/5 There's a slight promise of something unusual with a title like "Boy Hunt", an anomaly among the more comfortably chauvinist "Woman Hunt" titles. And indeed, an all boy's school set film with a predatory female protagonist seems to have ...

Beads From a Petal (花弁のしずく) (Japan, 1972) [VoD] - 3/5 Interesting if uneven directorial debut by Noboru Tanaka, whose background in French literature and poetry is worth keeping in mind when watching his early films. This movie, about a traumatized, sexually frigid woman (Rie Nakagawa in her first ...

Gate of Flesh (肉体の門) (Japan, 1977) [VoD] - 2.5/5 Nikkatsu's semi-lavish Roman Porno adaptation of the famous novel, produced with a larger than usual budget and released with an exceptional 97 minute running time. It's a good story and there are fine, even poignant moments depicting life in the pos...

I'd love to see Girl and the Wooden Horse Torture come out on proper dvd/bd (haven't seen the current dvd, but I assume it's VHS quality) I assume the chances for that are pretty high.

I'm getting a bit too old for these kind of films, especially ones with no budget, but I do admit being slightly excited for this, for the sheer passion and stubborness that comes thru from that trailer... And I admit laughing when I read "Scissor Dick (Naoyuki Tomomatsu, 2018)" :lol: God bless him....
