The Shortest Distance is Round 3: Fallen Flowers

Continuing with the weird trilogy of "The Shortest Distance", I am so glad that finally I am done with part 3 and won't have to deal with this again in future. Thankfully, as of now the makers have not announced any further parts; which will save all of us on this earth from the embarrassment of watching this in near future.

After the first 10 minutes are used in sort of recapping bits of first two parts, the story moves forward. Haruto is now starting to have feelings for Ruka, the mysterious pole dancer from second part. In a fit of rage, Ruka ends up killing the goat man and to save him and Haruto, Shibahara asks them to go underground. Meanwhile Shibahara continues the search for Seiya (the guy who had cut off Haruto's penis). It turns out Seiya is now also taking care of the original club owner from part 1. Both of them were released after they had informed Shibahara of Aoyama's secret location. Shibahara tortures Seiya's boyfriend leading to Seiya killing Shibahara. Meanwhile Ruka and Haruto are now sort of free and a couple and this is when Rua reveals one more truth that it was in fact him who killed Aoyama and not Shibahara.

This part has much less sex compared to first two parts but the shocks and twists that you have gotten used to in the first two parts keeps coming here too. Although here they feel a bit forced to be honest. They go all over the place. Its smart writing but when they keep coming one after the other, you really can't keep. Attack of who's who. Unlike normal films where the idea is that people prove they are innocent, here the situations different where one after the other, every person is turning out to be the villain and someone who has benign control of the situation right from the beginning even though it didn't seem so. I have to admit that however weird and embarrassing this trilogy was, there was a weird sense of fun watching it. Its like those films that are so so so bad, that you even enjoy them for all the ridiculousness that they offer. This trilogy fits absolutely perfect in that category. Picture this when the characters, who are supposed to be two men in love say
"Haruto, I don't have a cock."
"I know, Shibahara told me. I don't have one either."
I laughed my ass off at the ridiculousness of the whole thing. So, tell me how can you now secretly enjoy the hot mess that this trilogy is. (3.5/10)

One Summer Night (Korean)

I really wanted to like this film but for non native speakers, these movie leaves a lot to be understood and the way scenes were unfolding in front of me, I wasn't sure many times what was really going on. The story had potential button getting any back story on any of the characters limited my ability to empathize with any of these actors. Film starts with two North Korea military guys Yong Joon and Jae Sung having sex and they are caught red handed and they run. Three years later we see Yong Joon in Seoul leading a very mundane and poor life. He has a boyfriend Tae-Kyu, who is a weird guy. He is carefree, doesn't do any work and is completely emotional and financially dependent on Young Joon. In fact, even Yong Joon will go to any lengths to protect him , fend for him and taking care of him to the extent of even taking up prostitution. Suddenly one day Jae Sung appears in their life again. His motivation is not clear but it is obvious he wants Yong Joon back in his life, who

Ultimate masturbation: Shigoki no yama (Japanese) [The Ultimate Masturbation]

I would never know what was the point behind making this film. Was it supposed to be a comedy, cos it wasn't. It wasn't even porn. It was just a silly attempt at making something absolutely senseless and ridiculous. The story, as well as direction is equally shoddy. You could laugh for having seen something so bad, but I wouldn't call that comedy. An old man runs a camp about gay masturbation. The explanation given is that gays masturbate for pleasure unlike straight men, for whom the act is seen as shame or because they can't find a woman. One day a straight man shows up and wants to join the camp for his thesis. After discussion, he is allowed in. Rules include that you can masturbate together, you can masturbate one another, but there is no fellatio or anal sex. Some students of course breaks rule. The teacher then talks about 2 forms of masturbation which gives ultimate pleasure. He shows one without touching and then refuses to talk of the other. Somehow suddenly,
