With its emphasis on female nudity, this may be cinema more for the devoted voyeur than the casual viewer - but at the same time it puts the male gaze in its place.

Audience Reviews for Female Yakuza Tale: Inquisition & Torture

[img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/movie/coverv/31/248631.jpg[/img] [font=Times New Roman][size=3]Ms. Ocho returns in Female Yakuza, the sequel to Sex and Fury. The film begins with Ms. Ocho be drugged, captured, and sexually tortured, perhaps even raped. Ms. Ocho seeks revenge; however, in the research of the men responsible she uncovers a web of deceit, sexploitation, rape, slavery, and drug dealing. Ocho now realizes it will take more then just the killing of these men to exact revenge. She now wishes to bring down the entire regime and not just the men responsible for taking advantage of her.[/size][/font] [size=3][font=Times New Roman] [/font][/size] [font=Times New Roman][size=3]“You big assed, piss smelling, little tramp...”[/size][/font] [size=3][font=Times New Roman] [/font][/size] [font=Times New Roman][size=3]Teruo Ishii, director of Tattooed Swordswoman, Hell’s Tattooers, and Screwed, directs Female Yakuza. The Pinky Violence films, at least the two I have seen, are abstract at best. The stories are never strait line, and have more going on then you may expect. However, the film shows vast amounts of nudity, sex scenes, rape and sexploitation, and always revenge plots. All these attributes would not be bad it they were delivered with better purpose. In the reading of the plot and storyline, this film sounds better then it is.[/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3]“You got a disease?”[/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3]“That’s right, but when I’m better I’ll come back and poke you once or twice.”[/size][/font] [size=3][font=Times New Roman] [/font][/size] [size=3][font=Times New Roman]The opening fight sequence in the rain, the switching of the priests clothes, first brothel fight scene with the lady bosses ass on fire, young Ocho cheating while gambling, revenge for the earlier gambling scene, insane asylum scene, and the strange final fight were all entertaining. The snot and pissing scenes along with the dude with eye shadow were all a bit disturbing. The music was solid, the over use of sex was interesting, and there are quit a few people running around without fingers after this film. Why does the brothel turn into a Girl Scout troop in the end? [/font][/size] [size=3][font=Times New Roman][/font][/size][size=3][font=Times New Roman] [/font][/size] [font=Times New Roman][size=3]“As a favor amongst women, please spare the middle finger.” [/size][/font] [size=3][font=Times New Roman] [/font][/size] [font=Times New Roman][size=3]Female Yakuza, Sex and Fury, and Lady Snowblood are amongst the films that later inspired the great Kill Bill series. I will say Lady Snowblood is easily where Kill Bill is directly derived from; however, both Lady Snowblood and Female Yakuza were released in 1973. I usually find these early seventies pieces extremely entertaining. The two Pinky Violence films I have viewed are the exceptions to the rule. Both have a story with potential for greatness, but Ishii spends too much time focused on sex scenes. I believe Ishii becomes too fascinated with making a soft porn type film and fails with the completion of his tale. His films usually start in the right direction then take drastic turns into pointlessness.[/size][/font] [size=3][font=Times New Roman] [/font][/size] [font=Times New Roman][size=3]“The funs diluted if she’s asleep.”[/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][/size][/font] [font='Times New Roman']Grade: D- [/font]
