FURYO ANEGO DEN : INOSHIKA OCHO/Sex and Fury (1973)


Remember Uma taking on the army of Japanese assassins in KILL BILL Vol.1 ? Well, there is a similar scene in SEX AND FURY. Maybe not as many opponents are despatched but Reiko Ike goes one better and does the whole scene stark naked! This is vintage Japanese exploitation fare and features, in addition to the aforementioned scene a couple of assassination attempts, several murders, bondage, some girl on girl action, rape, shootings, a flagellation scene with a buckskin clad girl whipping another in front of a religious fresco and watched by an audience of flick knife wielding nuns! It starts with a bloody murder in the 1880’s and the jumps forward to 1905 for its tale of revenge, police corruption, pick pockets, gambling…and, oh, did I mention the poisoned vagina O.K. admit it…you want to see it. Right?

Yeah, Sex and Fury is a mind-blower. If you can find them, in a similar genre you can enjoy the three Hanzo The Razor movies which feature probably the most unusual police detective in movie history. I've got them, and they're seriously weird but oddly addictive viewing. Politically incorrect to the max but definite cult cinema.

I've heard of these, Terry, but not seen them. So many movies, so little time.

Yeah, I admit it. I wanna see it. Her exploits you describe sound like the perfect weekend!
