The Glamorous Life of Sachiko Hanai Reviews

Conceptually outlandish but routinely executed, this comic exploration of macho, control-freaky power struggles the world over remains skin-deep.

Film Journal International

The film is nothing more than a rapidly tiresome gag that barely seems to understand the knotty philosophical problems being posited by its lusty fembot heroine.

The overripe morsel who gets batted around in the Japanese absurdithon The Glamorous Life of Sachiko Hanai looks like she was conjured up by a teenage boy in dangerous hormonal overdrive.

| Original Score: 1.5/5

Nothing short of confounding, the film seems to exist in an uneasy limbo between avant-garde brilliance and completely inane abrasiveness.

My head wants to explode at the woman-hating hideousness of this.

A flimsy plot about Korean spies leads to a climactic sight gag involving an enhanced version of George W. Bush's forefinger, but it's all window dressing for the main attraction: lots of bouncing T & A.

As befits the form, enjoyment of this film will depend almost entirely on one's appreciation of the substantial anatomical charms of its lead actress.

The Glamorous Life of Sachiko Hanai is far less silly than it thinks it is. The upbeat vibe of super-female power misfires with a gratuitous rape scene.

Uninspired staging and pacing manage the near-impossible feat of rendering such lunatic concepts dull.

Combines soft-core porn with a fantastical sci-fi plot.

Pam Grady
Reel.com

This is one off-the-wall sex comedy. It is even occasionally actually funny in its offbeat fashion, but it is essentially stupid and the forays into sexual violence are downright ugly.

| Original Score: 2/4

Sachiko Hanai is pretty much just raunch, much like the stuff that insinuates itself onto late-night premium channel programming. And which gets old fast.

... a weird hybrid in the vein of the 1974 American sex pic Flesh Gordon, but with a more modern, goosed-up style.

An apocalyptic political satire.

Is this sleaze dressed up as art, or vice-versa? As more and more daring directors opt to push the envelope with similar conversation-provoking pictures, we'll have to let the debate about what could be an emerging cinematic trend continue.

More entertaining for its impudence than its execution...

It's a film to be experienced more than judged and is only recommended for those with adventurous tastes. At the very least, I doubt you'll be bored.

An obscene, elaborate joke at the expense of the Bush Administration.... It's the trashy midnight weird-out that Grindhouse could have been.

Recklessly fun, explosively colorful and intensely, abusively edited.
