In the Realm of the Senses
Directed by Nagisa Oshima
The Book claimed this was an "art" film, but let's call it what it is: porn. Maybe it has more to say than other pornos, but that doesn't stop it from belonging in that genre. I guess it still counts as a film, though, so we will roll with it.
Sada Abe is maid in a hotel. The hotel owner molests her and the two begin an affair, despite the fact that he is married (aw, romance). I suppose she begins to unravel but honestly, he's the one behaving like a monster. When you have been single for awhile like me, these Alex Forrest characters start to seem quite reasonable. But that's a discussion for another time.
I don't want anyone to feel like a pervert for saying they like this movie. I wasn't offended by what I saw but to me, the sex scenes weren't particularly interesting. Watching this man consistently be a dick wasn't exactly compelling viewing for me. I get enough of that in real life.
Based on a true story. Hold onto your penises, if you weren't already.
