Storyline

Pinku (the Japanese softcore film sub-genre) has a long and historied part in Japanese cinema. The genre has existed for over forty years and seen many ebbs and flows. One of the directors during the heyday of the movement was the prolific Muranishi Toru. Adpated from a novel about the man, The Naked Director depicts the character, his art, vision and his interactions with the approving and disapproving folk around him. Written by aghaemi

User Reviews

 
A work of art. Absolutely loved it.
9 August 2019 | by advaitmaratheSee all my reviews

Please watch it with the original, Japanese audio and not the dubbed verison. The story was truly amazing, realistic and captivating. Not a single scene felt rushed or slow, pacing was perfect. The story really captures Japan in the 80s and the porn industry of that era. The story is basically a fight for the market share of the industry despite the government restrictions on uncensored pornography. I don't know how much of this is true and how much is fictitious but one thing that I do know is that this series is extremely entertaining and informative. It is definitely worth a watch.
