Pink Films

By: Erdiawa​n

“Pink film (ピンク映画 Pinku eiga or Pink eiga?) is a style of Japanese softcore pornographic theatrical film. Films of this genre first appeared in the early 1960s, and dominated the Japanese domestic cinema from the mid-1960s through the mid-1980s. In the 1960s, the pink films were largely the product of small, independent studios. In the 1970s, some of Japan’s major studios, facing the loss of their theatrical audience, took over the pink film. With their access to higher production-values and talent, some of these films became critical and popular successes. Though the appearance of the AV (adult video) took away most of the pink film audience in the 1980s, films in this genre are still being produced.”—Wikipedia

Oh yeah, love it! And I love the titles too (Angel Guts; The Strange Saga of Hiroshi the Freeloading Sex Machine; Love - Zero = Infinity; Lolita Vibrator Torture; etc).

GLAMOROUS LIFE OF SACHIKO HANAI and THE STRANGE SAGA OF HIROSHI THE FREELOADING SEX MACHINE are fine 21st Century pinkus. I haven't seen I.K.U. but I'm willing to bet it would fit into a list of worthwhile pinkus.

    I'd say HIROSHI is the better film, as it has a bit more to it than just tits and laughs, but SACHIKO HANAI is so inventively daft and enjoyable - it out-performs most mainstream comedies even if it doesn't out-class them.
