DELINQUENTS ON THE LOOSE
Two of pinku's biggest stars headline a rare film festival in Tokyo.

If you find yourself in Tokyo today, Cinema Laputa Asagaya is hosting a retrospective of films featuring two of the biggest pinku stars of the 1970s—Reiko Ike and Miki Sugimoto, who are not only big stars but also Pulp Intl. faves who we've discussed many times. A new film will be featured every weekend until April 1, with all the pair's most legendary efforts appearing on the program, including Yasagure anego den: sôkatsu rinchi, aka Female Yakuza Tale (discussed here and here), Zenka onna: koroshi-bushi, aka Criminal Woman: Killing Melody, for which you can see the badass promo poster hereand of course Furyô anego den: Inoshika Ochô, aka Sex & Fury, which we talked about way back in 2009. There will be thirteen films in all, and the festival represents the best chance to see all these movies on a big screen in many years, and in a pretty cool location too. If you're in the vicinity, don't miss it.

UNCHAINED MELODY
Mad as hell and not going to take it anymore.


Japanese poster for Zenka onna: koroshi-bushi, aka Criminal Woman: Killing Melody, with Reiko Ike and Miki Sugimoto. It premiered in Japan today in 1973, but you might already know that, because we did a post on this film last year. You can see that post, and that poster, here.

REVERSE ANGLE
Turn around bright eyes.

This one-sheet for Zenka onna: koroshi-bushi, aka Criminal Woman: Killing Melody is one of the more common pinku images on the internet and, for that reason, we weren’t going to post it. But then we decided to do it anyway because, with only one exception, every site we saw had this piece reversed. Yeah, we know—those Japanese characters look the same backward and forward. Unless of course you happen to read Japanese. So for the record, the poster is correctly oriented the way we have it above. As for the movie, well you’ve got Reiko Ike, action, gore, sexploitation, prison, and co-star Miki Sugimoto, all in a fast-paced, straightforward revenge flick. It isn’t quite tops, but even mediocre pinku is good pinku in our book. Zenka onna: koroshi-bushi opened in Japan today in 1973.
