Visually gorgeous but a lightweight offering from Teruo Ishii
The beautiful Reiko Ike returns in this low-budget sequel to "Sex and Fury". A non-stop, rather confusing tale of gangs, drug running and revenge, "Female Yakuza Tale: Inquisition and Torture" is a wonderfully visual movie with a great '70s score and an excellent cast.
Despite finding the plot a little too convoluted, I enjoyed watching this movie. The scenes of softcore romps with middle-aged men started to exceed their welcome in no time at all but the film has a decent pace and energy that allows it to overcome its limitations. Reiko Ike is a stunning actress and steals every scene. Her willingness to give 100% to the film soon becomes apparent in the opening credits where she manages to full disrobe in the midst of a sword fight with numerous assailants.
Not the most exciting crime thriller I've seen from Japan, "Female Yakuza Tale" is still an entertaining movie from bonkers director Teruo Ishii.
