Murder on D Street (1998) aka D-Zaka no satsujin jiken

A strange murder mystery tale about a lady who asks a forgery artist (Hiroyuki Sanada) to forge a series of rare bondage / torture paintings for her. Upon discovering that the client was actually the original model in those paintings, he murders her. The first half of the film focuses on all of the main characters, including the buildup to the crime. There is not much mystery here as they clearly show how, when & where the crime was committed. Then the movie goes on with how the investigation takes place – led by Kogoro Akechi (which by the way, happens to be Japan’s most recognized ‘super detective’ on par with Sherlock Holmes). There is also a lot of erotic bondage and nudity in this film, making it borderline pinku. However, the bondage scenes are mostly quite short, used instead to depict the strange offbeat feel to the film.

Portrait Of A Serial Rapist (1994) a.K.a Tuen Man sik mo

portrait_of_a_serial_rapist-1994_coverThis shot-on-video film opens with a close up of a man groping a woman’s dripping wet breasts, and seems to kind of come back to that same theme regularly throughout the movie. If it’s men raping dripping wet women you’re after, this one should suit you just fine, averaging about one wet rape scene every 15 minutes, with the remainder of the film made up of cops sitting around the station plotting their next move. Based on the same series of crimes that the film “The Rapist” was based on, and released the same year, 1994 was a good year for rape films.
