Anti-Porno (2016)

Sion Sono directs Ami Tomite, Mariko Tsutsui and Fujiko in this erotic pop art exploration of feminism and exploitation.

The first twenty minutes is a very trendy softcore porn film where a flamboyant artist bullies her older assistant. Then someone yells cut, a wall disappears and we witness the all male crew filming the all female cast and everything changes. We are now in the psyche of one of the female performers. We are raced shrilly through a hypercolour dream state of flashbacks, fantasy, nightmare and self-realisation. There is unerotic nudity and unusual erratic sex. There are bukakkes of paint and character warps. In the main though, it is often didactic sequences of fetished young women screaming non-sensical gender politics statements at you with lots of commitment but very little deep though. Looks fantastic, plays out gratingly.
