Tokyo Decadence ★½ 1991 (NC17)
Ai is a high-paid prostitute working in Tokyo for an agency that specializes in sado-masochism. Film follows her various sexual escapades in humiliating detail as well as her drug-addled search for a client Ai thinks she's in love with. Since Ai remains a cipher, the film also remains unfocused except for its creepy and explicit sex scenes. Adaptation of director Murakami's novel “Topaz.” In Japanese with English subtitles or dubbed. 92m/C VHS, DVD . JP Miho Nikaido, Tenmei Kano, Yayoi Kusama, Sayoko Amano; D: Ryu Murakami; W: Ryu Murakami; C: Tadashi Aoki; M: Ryuichi Sakamoto.
