Female Yakuza Tale

For fans of other Female lead Japanese exploitation movies like Lady Snowblood or the Female Prisoner Scorpion films, Female Yakuza Tale is going to be a must see. The Japanese made sleazy movies with undeniable style and this film has all the graphic elements that make these movies so good even 30 years after they were first produced.

In this one a women called Ocho is captured by a drug dealing cartel who use Chinese women to smuggle their contraband, hiding the gear in a particularly personal place! Ocho is going to have to endure hell if she is going to escape her captors, so expect a good deal of torture and sexual violence. Can she fight her way through a tough gang of yakuza grunts and a vicious mob of female thieves?

It seems like the whole criminal underworld is after her, but in the best traditions of Japanese B-pictures, vengeance will be hers...Rivers of blood, eye popping colour saturated sets and outrageous sword fighting, this movie is trash lovers paradise!

Sex & Fury

Japanese exploitation movies offer style and beautifully executed film making alongside the expected sex and violence, creating a weird hybrid of gratuitous dirt with an arthouse sensibility. A typical feature of the films is a strong female lead who will be abused and tortured before turning the tables on her aggressors. Viewers can expect to feel uncomfortable about the grimy rape footage and bondage sequences but will then marvel at the cinematography and vibrant colour schemes.

The plot, a slim device designed to facilitate as much action on screen as possible, concerns an Ocho, a female thief and gambler in Menji era Japan. Charged at a young age with seeking vengeance for her murdered father at the hands of bandits, Ocho must search far and wide for the killers. When she comes to the aid of an anarchist on the run from the local crime mob, she puts herself on a path that will lead directly to her father's slayers.

Charges of misogyny could be levelled at movies like this and it's certain that well crafted movies of this sort would be hard to make in our politically correct climate but if you can take this film at face value, it offers an elegant exercise in barrel scraping exploitation which is both eye popping and jaw dropping.

    Sex and Fury is a fantastic film and the nude fight scene is one of my favorite fight scenes ever! The music is unbelievable and the way her feet dance around in the snow as you see only her shadow on the ground showing her killing the enemy...amazing!
