Thread: Nikkatsu Roman Porno Catalogue Titles Coming From Synapse/Impulse

  1. #71
    Oh, I understand the place of rape in exploitation cinema and i'm not the moral police... It's not something I particulary enjoy watching but once you learn to "read" exploitation films they become much less offensive (more "serious" depictions of rape I find very disturbing though, as you should - I giggle at the rape scene in "Mad Foxes" but get sickened by the one in "Irrversible"). The problem for me is when the films are just lots and lots of rape and degradation and when you feel the makers of the films seems to have genuine issues with womankind, often the case with asian sleaze films. I can understand the "Whoooa, what the fuck am I watching!?"-lure of these films but often they rub me the wrong way. Still, I feel perhaps i'm talking about some of the worst examples of the genre (the ones that gets taked about by nerds in the west), I have only scratched the surface of the pinku/roman porno and I have a hunch i'll like some of the films i've ordered.

    Yeah...I feel that maybe you are taking some of the worst examples of the genre and judging them all on this......but on the other hand the the Japanese films especially do tend to focus on this aspect quite a lot!!

    Ont he other hand, movies such as "The Rapeman" A comic book movie about a super-hero who goes around violating perps and suspects seems morally one of the more dubious entries in the genre...but turns out more on the level of a HK CAT 3 movie with plenty of humour..and they are pretty well made too!

    You should maybe trysome of the comedies a bit more than the roughies...see how they grab ya!

    Yeah, the darker ones that take things more seriously, I can see why those might be unsettling. Some of this stuff rubbed me the wrong way too once I first started diving into it but I guess over the years I've more or less become immune to it. That might not be a good thing.
    Rock! Shock! Pop!

    It definitely does SOMETHING to you after a while...

    I overdosed on this genre by watching to many at once...not only did they generally become less and less offensive to me...they also started to get a bit monotonous.....

    There are plenty of lighthearted ones out there to cut your teeth on....Some of them about as offensive as a Benny Hill episode (with nudity obviously!!)

    So with Impulse's next two titles being US movies (there's a thread on them in the exploitation forum) I wonder if it's going to be a few months before we see any new releases in the Roman Porno line? I know not all of the titles that Don announced from Nikkatsu have been released so I'm sure there's more coming in 2013 but it looks like the wait might be a bit longer this time (just speculation on my part, I want to be wrong on this!).

    It's the one movie I can recall that unsettled her. Take that as a recommendation if you want. It's a rough one.
