Naomi Tani from the classic 1974 Flower & Snake.

From the liner notes:

Based on the novel by Oniroku Dan, this beautifully lensed film helped usher in the S&M Roman Porno genre in Japan and many numerous sequels and remakes. Flower & Snake ’74 (aka Hana to Hebi) was directed by Masaru Konuma (Wife to be Sacrificed) and boasts an ultra-groovy score by Riichiro Manabe (Godzilla vs. Megalon, Godzilla vs. the Smog Monster).

New Tokyo Decadence: The Slave

Posted in Uncategorized by acidsquid on February 21, 2010

Above is a still from one of my favorite Japanese films, New Tokyo Decadence: The Slave which was directed by Osamu Sato.  If you are into this type of thing, this movie is amazing.  It was released by one of my favorite studios Pink Eiga  (which translates appropriately to Pink Film).  If you have ever seen the movie The Secretary with James Spader, well trust me when I tell you it doesn’t hold a candle to this film.  This is the ultimate in “secretary” films.
