Movie Info

Former pinku eiga director Hiroki Ryuichi spins this farcical tale, adapted from an autobiographical novel by Kihachi Dan, about a hack writer's desperate attempts to overcome writers block . Kurosaki (Ren Osugi) used to dream about dedicating his life to Art, but has since dedicated his life to crass commercialism by cranking out S&M porno for a low rent publisher. Feeling that this creative well has run dry, he realizes that he needs some real time experience to get his writing to flow once again. He turns to his eager-to-please assistant Kawada (Jun Murakami) who hires a nubile lass named Kyoko (Eri Yamazaki) to strike bound poses in the writer's living room. Meanwhile, Kurosaki's wife Shizuko (Yoko Hoshi) has surprisingly taken a dim view of this practice, and out of revenge seduces a hunky American English teacher (William Brian Churchill) -- and then, as if to add insult to injury, she seduces Kawada. This film was screened at the 2000 Vancouver International Film Festival. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovimore

Audience Reviews for I Am an S&M Writer (Futei no kisetsu)

This starts out as a mildly amusing sex comedy, for which I'll admit I had low expectations, but it then becomes surprisingly insightful with its perspective on sexual dominance and submission, and real human behavior and emotions. The two leads deliver complex performances that are very believable. It certainly could have gone deeper, especially at the end, and it's not as erotic as the title seems to suggest, but for fans of the subject matter or anyone curious it's definitely worth watching.
