Critic Reviews for The Naked Director Season 1

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (0)

The eight-episode series seeks the sweet spot between wild, almost-slapstick comedy and the technical prowess of American prestige TV - and fearlessly depicts the type of taboo smut that fueled Muranishi's notoriety.

Aug 9, 2019 | Full Review…

The Naked Director tries to strike a balance between raucous sex comedy and action-packed underworld narrative in this tale of a pornographic revolution.

Audience Reviews for The Naked Director: Season 1

  • Mar 31, 2020
    Surprisingly awesome. The series brings you a fresh and eyes-opening topic to a world where the whole world would know of the final products, but not the dedication of the crews behind the scene.

    Fresh, brilliant, television.
  • Dec 20, 2019
    Please make season 2

    The show I did not know I needed
  • Sep 12, 2019
    Show rapidly yet smoothly bounces from erotic to comedy to drama without missing a beat. Can't wait for season 2!
  • Sep 11, 2019
    Japanese Breaking Bad. 10/10
  • Sep 05, 2019
    Some episodes are fun and have an interesting script, but in general this season is almost a tribute to Muranishi films: amateurish.

    This was pretty great. Binged season 1 in one sitting
  • Aug 23, 2019
    Finally, real work coming to Japan. Thank you Netflix. 俳優陣の迫真の演技に震えた。特に主役の山田孝之は凄すぎる。本当にこれが日本のドラマなのか!?。音楽、カメラ、脚本、演出、どれも海外の作品に引けをとらず面白い。この作品を新たな始まりとして日本の作品がより良くなることを切に願う。
