Nami (Mai Kitajima) is a popular actress, but in her personal life, her marriage is at a crisis point as her husband, Yosuke (Toshiyuki Nagashima), a fellow actor, keeps having affairs. The new film they are working on together is about a heroine who kills her husband and his mistress. The film is drawing a lot of public attention because of its casting, where Nami is the heroine, her husband is played by Yosuke, complete with Yosuke’s mistress playing the part of the mistress. Then Katsuragi (Naoto Takenaka), an editor, asks Nami for an interview. Nami accepts it as if superseding herself on the character in the film. Nami has in fact killed her husband and his mistress, and she has been taken into a mental institution; Katsuragi, a psychiatrist, has been pretending to be a journalist to look for the truth.

Sadao Nakajima – Poruno no joô: Nippon sex ryokô aka The Pornstar Travels Around Japan (1973)

Quote:
A voice from IMDB My continuing quest to see every film that Sweden’s stunningly beautiful Christina Lindberg ever made has brought me here to this extremely rare film… The plot: Christina, on arriving in Japan, acquaints a Japanese man at the airport who looks like a sap. He takes her to his apartment where he brutally rapes her and keeps her hostage and bound in chains. Christina’s alluring beauty eventually enchants the rapist and he is soon consulting his ‘How to Stimulate a Woman’ sex book in an effort to please her… Of course, our girl exploits this weakness and manages to escape. She then finds her way to a nightclub and to cut a long story short is ganged-banged by some odd-looking characters. Christina is not having a lot of luck is she, poor girl! Read More »

Synopsis:
A perverted social outcast lures young sailor-suited virgins to the back of his truck where he torments and murders them before disposing of their corpses in an acid bath. With one, however, he meets his match. Doing for the vibrator what Tobe Hooper did for the chainsaw, this particularly disturbing portrayal of borderline pubescent girls far more knowing than their adult male counterparts is arguably one of the most unpleasant Sadean sex fantasies ever to hit the big screen.

Matthew Barney – Cremaster 4 (1995)

Cremaster 4 adheres most closely to the project’s biological model. This penultimate episode describes the system’s onward rush toward descension despite its resistance to division. The logo for this chapter is the Manx triskelion – three identical armored legs revolving around a central axis. Set on the Isle of Man, the film absorbs the island’s folklore as well as its more recent incarnation as host to the Tourist Trophy motorcycle race. Myth and machine combine to narrate a story of candidacy, which involves a trial of the will articulated by a series of passages and transformations. The film comprises three main character zones.
