    Demented

    A woman's attempts to regain her sanity after being gang raped are hampered by her philandering husbands lack of support, and her isolation causes her to be plagued by recurring nightmares.. or are they just nightmares? This film truly is demented, a lot of the time it's hard to tell what's real, or what's just going on in our buxom heroines head.The husband who's coming up with ever more ridiculous excuses to escape to visit his money-grubbing mistress is played,…

While it admittedly lacks those films groundbreaking…

    Hokuriku Proxy War

    ★★★★

    Hiroki Matsukata plays a Yakuza in frozen Hokuriku determined to stand his ground against the encroachment of larger national syndicates! The last of Kinji Fukasaku's incredible run of 'ripped from the headlines' jitsuroku films. No Bunta Sugawara this time, but Hiroki Matsukata is a more than capable lead, his portrayal of a ferocious, uncompromising character is reminiscent of his similar role in 'Escaped Murderer from Hiroshima Prison'. Sonny Chiba has a minor role as one of the syndicate bosses, who…
