The Glamorous Life of Sachiko Hanai Reviews

Andrea Gronvall
Chicago Reader
Top Critic IconTop Critic

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.

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.

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

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.

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

An apocalyptic political satire.

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 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.

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