Movie Info

Taiwanese-born experimental filmmaker Shu Lea Cheang directs this dizzying computer-enhanced sci-fi cyber-porn flick. A pun that roughly translates from Japanese as "I'm coming!", the title aptly sets the film's orgasmic tone. The story, as such, revolves around the GENOM Corporation, which has started mass-producing sexbots for the lofty purpose of bettering humankind's sexual development. Reiko (Tokitoh Ayumu) is one such cyborg; her body being one giant "Gen-XXX IKU Coder" hard drive, she is burdened with the task of collecting "orgasm data" by shagging everything that moves. Set against some brilliantly bizarre digitally-animated set pieces, the film's characters couple, triple, and so forth with remarkable indifference to gender, species, or physiological make-up. This film was screened at the 2000 Sundance Film Festival. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi


Critic Reviews for I.K.U.

All Critics (4)

It's as if the producers were ashamed of what they were up to, and thought they could disguise it by blanketing the thing with the trappings of science fiction.

It's more of a visual 'conversation piece' than a cohesive story, but it's most assuredly for adults only!

If I.K.U. isn't the ultimate "adult" party film, I don't know what is.
