Confessions of a Secretary (1976) aka Onna hisho no kokuhaku: kaniku no shitatari (1976)

Erratic director Yukihiko Kondo moved into darker, more carnal territory than he had explored in his previous work with this problematic but worthwhile pinku eiga entry from Nikkatsu. Hitomi Kozue stars as Ayako, a corporate secretary who was once raped by a company executive and was awarded her current position as compensation. Ayako sees a younger woman raped in a stairwell by the same guy, and starts looking over shoulder, as she’s sure she is about to lose her job in favor of the young victim. She’s right, but Ayako still manages to have one last corporate fling when she attends a wanton orgy with a gay male co-worker. Sleazy and unpleasant, but well-paced and at times quite erotic, this was one of Nikkatsu’s more interesting releases of the year. Erina Miyai co-stars as Kei Sasao and Hirokazu Ito.

Assault! (1976) aka Boko!

This is one of the better films from the Nikkatsu studio’s hard-edged strain of pinku eiga roughies, a violent subset of films trading on beatings, rape, and torture without necessarily falling into traditional S&M film trappings. Nobutaka Masutomi stars as a bar-owner named Kuroki, forlornly waiting for his adulterous wife (Hitomi Kozue) to get back from messing around with her boyfriend (Akira Takahashi). She returns, but because she’s been fooling around with gangsters she brings trouble with her. Kuroki gets tied up and beaten, his wife and customers get tortured and raped, and it is finally up to the mousy cuckold to set things right, Straw Dogs-style. Because this is a Japanese film, however, Kuroki finishes off his vengeful killing spree by murdering his unfaithful wife as well as her attackers.
