    Educating Yuna 2005

    ★★★★ Watched 02 Jul, 2015

    This is really quite splendid. Not for everyone but for those who think they will like it, I can assure you that you will. Has just about everything any of these S&M based 'pinks' have without the nasty edge and surprisingly including a tied up guy as well. So everything you might expect and then some more. Someone has complained about lack of story, which I suppose is fair enough as this goes from sex act to sex act with barely a moment for the young girl to reflect about her inner feelings or watch the dancing shadows in brief outdoor cutaways.

    The Misfits 1961

In this film, ostensibly about a couple of ladies living out a BDSM relationship in a rambling old mansion, his filmic inspiration…

    Strip Nude for Your Killer 1975

    ★★★★ Watched 27 Feb, 2013 1

    I didn’t think much of this when I first saw it and don’t think much of it now. It’s terrible really because the girls are great and it looks good most of the time with plenty of sexy kills. The title, salacious though it is, is pretty accurate, but the predictable tale plods along and in the end produces a killer we have not only not seen but did not know existed! Distortion on the soundtrack doesn’t help this one.…
