Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[why the titles of his films were repetitive] Because the basic theme is the same, because all my films deal with the same primal element--the fight against authoritarianism, the individual hate and revenge against authority and repression. That hate and revenge explode in lust and violence. Is this bad?


Leading director of low-budget 'pink movies' ("pinku eiga"), usually on erotic or political themes.
