Apollo My Love (Japanese)

OMG!! What did I just see. I know I recently got familiar with a term called 'Pink Film'. I am beginning to wonder if this is something very specific to Japanese films. Because this film was like a Pink film times two. With a paper thin gay love plot, more than half of the film was simulated sex scenes of all kinds of nature which was probably used to titilate audience.

Soichi lives his life on a yacht. He had met young and naiive boy Masao, about a year ago who had run away form home and since then they have bene living as lovers. Masao calls him as Apollo. Soichi also has sexual relations with his step mother, who is younger than him. Apollo has to leave to meet the woman to arrange for money leaving Masao alone on the boat. In his absence, 2 men and a woman come into the watch, sexually assault and are and torture Masao. It turns out that Soichi at some point had raped the girl. Apollo comes in time to save his boyfriend.

Yes, trust me this was the one hour long film, with a paper thing plot. It was almost a soft porn without showing genitals but at the same time nothing was left to imagination. I am scandalized by the thought that its a Japanese film that too from 1984 (almost 35 years old). How did the makers manage to get away with such explicit gay sex scenes and rape scenes and torture scenes is beyond me. I guess there is enough reason to not call this queer cinema but also not call it pure porn at the same time. Soichi (or Apollo) just seemed like a guy with high sexual drive since he apparently sleeps with anyone and everyone, almost raping them, which is evident from how h literally forces himself on the boyfriend the first time. Just stay away form this one. Besides the cute young boy, I was actually a bit ashamed of having watched the film. Period. (2/10)

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,

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 killin

Driver (Thai)

Now, finally, a decent thriller with a gay theme. My last few attempts of watching a film with this genre has been terrible, so I was a bit nervous about this one. Actually to be honest, I did not even know that this was thriller when I started watching but pretty soon, it was obvious. For some reason, one thing that caught my attention in this film was the background music. Somehow it was just really good and perfect and went very very well with the film. I usually don’t even pay attention to such things but this was good. Businessman Tae has not returned from his Korea trip and this worries his wife Kade. She asks her police friend, Tum , to help her out but he advises her to wait for a few more days, because some work emergency may have had come up. But Kade is restless and can’t wait any longer so she asks her husband’s driver Mac to take her to his office to see if she can find something. There she finds an electricity bill for the house she never knows he had. Kade makes Mac
