Making the tasteless stylish indeed
5 April 2006 | by (Tellus) – See all my reviews

With the tight funk and cool jazz only the best in exploitation in show up with this came to me as a surprise this early and that far from the land of tomato sauce and olive oil, even considering the early exploits of Suzuki Seijun and Imamura Shohei.

Firstly this is 70s sleaze and mob cinema of the highest order and secondly girls this tough and impolite, Sugimoto's sukeban is in fact comparable to Tura Satana if not even badder(!), a girl this strong cant be hurt by anything. Still, even if the sequence with chains and beatings are sexist sleaze of a very perverted kind the way (at least) the invulnerable Sugimoto is "unmanhandlable" is equally feminist.

The storyline is about some girls escaping a from a prisoner transport and four of them make the gang "gypsies", of course the mob life is hard and the competing gangs are hard to beat. Its the girls against the boys, who'll win ?
