    Didn't re-watch this or anything, really just wanted to note that I used to pull this up with some frequency back in the day, as it was a special feature on my copy of "Touch Me in the Morning," and that two quotes from it have been clanging around my head regularly for what is now the majority of my life:

    Programmed as part of the farewell festivities for my favorite place in the world, Viva Video.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Like "The Lobster," a love story that concludes with voluntary blindness (though, in this case, it's only in one eye). Satsuki's transformation is highly compelling, as she gradually loses, then grieves, then moves on from a naive, idealized narrative about romance, concluding that it is, in fact, merely a narrative. The dramatized and contrived nature of a dom/sub relationship is effective in interrogating the dynamics of more "normal" relationships, but most broadly, it exposes the extent to which these dynamics…
