70 minutes of rape,torture and sexual degradation!
"Female Market"(1986),written by the "Guts of a Virgin/Beauty" director Kazuo "Gaira" Komizu is very depressing and hard to take experience due to its extreme misogynistic atmosphere and violence.This is surely hyper dark and hyper sadistic stuff-the abduction scenes at the first half of this movie are so sick and mean spirited that I felt bad while watching it.If this was released in UK,it would run some 10 minutes only!Then comes the brief revenge part in the tradition of "Last House on the Left" and then the escape and it all ends very mysteriously and ominously.And the visuals are impressive as the film is as dark as they get.It is incredible how these Japanese exploitation sickies still manage to be very noteworthy cinematically if the makers just wish so and have talent.But as said,"Female Market" is very strong,so only fans of Japanese extreme cinema will stomach it.
