Female Yakuza = Pinky Violence

Written by Joe D on August 16th, 2007

Once Upon A Time in Japan there was a sub genre of movies that came to be known as Pinky Violence. Back in the Late 60’s, early 70’s people in Japan weren’t flocking to the theaters so filmmakers upped the ante with nudity, violence, killer chick gangs , rampant crime,etc.

Reiko Ike fights bare breasted

The first installment Sex and Fury was a huge hit, packing them in like gangbusters so within no time flat they started rolling on this epic Female Yakuza Tale. It starred the same bare breasted , samurai sword swinging kick ass chick, Reiko Ike.

These films were made for a strictly theatrical release in Japan, they didn’t come to the States for quite some time. They had pretty good production value and were obviously made by talented people, the aesthetics are high caliber.

Red Sky at Night, Yakuza’s Delight

The music is way out there too, bizarre instrumentation, finger cymbals, wah wah guitar, analogue synth. Very Groovy! There’s also a killer nun- “When I Pray, I Kill!”

Praying Mantis

The story is insane , drug smuggling up the hoochie coo , revenge for Yakuza finger chopping gambling debts, wacko to say the least. Our heroine seduces the toadlike sweating pig of a Boss, just to lull him into a sense of complacency, I hope she was well paid.

Excellent Erotic Imagery

Then there’s a battle royal with an army of naked sword swinging chicks taking on the Yakuza gang.

Attack those chauvinist Pigs!

There’s another brand of Pinky Violence that deals with Tough Girl Gang Leaders, I’ve seen a few of them and they’re good too. These films are very well made, a lot of fun to watch and they give a kind of insider view to 1970’s Japanese culture. I recommend them.
P.S. Kimberly over at Cinebeats has just done a super cool piece on Pinky Violence, her blog is killer, check it out! http://www.cinebeats.com/
