  1. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film In the Realm of the Senses

    Guide book in how to make an art movie with unsimulated sex that critics will love. A shocking final scene and a few "bad taste" moments leave a lasting impact but the film is to be honest very repetitive after a while since the entire movie is about a woman fucking a man to death. Intense realistic "acting"

  2. Gia de Almeida's rating of the film In the Realm of the Senses

    Maybe I'm a prude, maybe it went over my head, maybe it's just not for me, maybe I completely missed the existence of a plot or characters of interest. For a movie with loads - pun intended - of explicit sex it completely bored me out of my head.

  3. Renton47's rating of the film In the Realm of the Senses

    By roundly identifying Senses only in relation to sex, it has an alienating quality where (for those on board) the escalation feels logical. It's such an insular, beguiling case, afforded such respect by a classic rebel, that we come to understand how "love" might develop in opposition to larger repressions. The dwindling life of those last 20 minutes incredibly haunting.

  4. Sara Lovering's rating of the film In the Realm of the Senses

    i hated it but it was incredible

  5. Eric Eidelstein's rating of the film In the Realm of the Senses

    Oh boy. This is certainly something. Something, I think, for the most part I understood — ethical questions aside.

  6. Popy's rating of the film In the Realm of the Senses

    Je mettrai toute ma vie à m'en remettre.

  7. Jugu Abraham's rating of the film In the Realm of the Senses

    I have had the honor of interviewing Director Oshima in 1984. I had loved his, "Merry Christmas, Mr Lawrence." I had not seen this film then. This is stylized pornography, nothing more.

  11. vxpl's rating of the film In the Realm of the Senses

    the whole movie revolves around passion and danger, felt like something was lacking, but kind of enjoyed it

  12. Jason Av's rating of the film In the Realm of the Senses

  13. Wee Hunk's rating of the film In the Realm of the Senses

    Saw it in the theatre with my Dad when I was 16. It was a bit too much for me. Saw it again a year or two ago, and it was much more graphic than I remembered. It was also enhanced by the quality of the print. It's a truly adult movie that borders on pornography.

  14. Max Chervin's rating of the film In the Realm of the Senses

    It's art porn so don't watch it with your family or someone you're romantically interested, you could watch it with a partner if they're into that tho

  18. Bogdan Liviu's rating of the film In the Realm of the Senses

    "I guess you have to approach death to feel the height of ecstasy."

  19. Crina Bucur's rating of the film In the Realm of the Senses

    Obsession is fine, but this felt more often than not like laughable soft porn.

  20. m00njaguar's rating of the film In the Realm of the Senses

    A unique Japanese perspective on passionate obsession, kinky sensuality, the traditional Japanese roles of male and female, shifting identities as the submissive/master. Lots of layers to this beautifully shot film. Plus lots of visible genitalia and apparently real sexual acts

  21. Rikard Westeman's rating of the film In the Realm of the Senses

    40 years later and this film still feels kind of scandalous. But after a while I found it to be repetitive and frankly a bit boring. Not without its moments though.

  22. beatrizatriz's rating of the film In the Realm of the Senses

    do you recall Alex's therapy, in clockwork orange?

  23. Linda Aurora Fajardo's rating of the film In the Realm of the Senses

    Complejidad erótica muy lejos de la cultura latinoamericana, pero muy interesante.
