Rope and Boys 1987
Nawa to otoko-tachi (original title)
1h | Drama | 1987 (Japan)
Yuji is an university student living with his older brother. When he runs into an old acquaintance on the street, the two begin an affair and Yuji ends up getting drawn into the world of S&M clubs, where men put up elaborate and decadent shows for their customers.
Usually I like my pinku films for the unexpected arty flourishes, this one just works for being straightforward nasty sexploitation. I’m pretty sure the sequel to this is the other pink film riff on Cruising besides Hunters’ Sense of Touch.
