I was asked once how come Japanese directors Takashi Miike is more appreciated in the Western world than in his own native land as a master of the macabre, the darkly twisted and of truly unnerving material; well, my answer was it is because Japan has been doing all sorts of twisted and sick films that may make one wonder just how it is they've been pulling off this stuff in the early 70's while we in the U.S. have just began to get used to the term `torture porn'. When European filmmakers produces a film that pushes the boundaries of taste and gruesome content, it is art but when Asian countries do the same it is considered exploitation and extreme. It is a double standard if you ask me. Well, in the world of exploitation and cult cinema, there are a lot of cases when a film is purely offensive and sleazy but there is that very rare opportunity that you would come across a film that transcends that reputation which becomes a compelling piece despite its graphic violence.

Such is the case with "The Star of David: Hunting for Beautiful Girls" by Japanese director Norifumi Suzuki, the director of "Sex and Fury" and "The School of the Holy Beast". Much of Japan's best directors began their filmography directing "Pink" horror films and on Suzuki`s resume, "Star of David" stands out. Suzuki is a maestro of delivering movies with an explicit subject matter such as gratuitous nudity, sexuality, depravity and brutality with a malicious, arresting and "artful" manner.

The film begins with the sound of police sirens. The police are looking for an escaped rapist, robber and murderer who we now see as having taken refuge in a huge house. This fugitive has taken a professor and his pretty wife hostage with the intention of robbing them.

Having seen (and now own) the delicious Asian nunsploitation gem "School Of The Holy Beast" as a teen, I was familiar with director Norifumi Sukuzi and, years later, heard of this film, but was never able to obtain a copy. I periodically toyed with the idea of picking up one of the dubious-quality bootleg copies that were circulating on Ebay for years, but always thought better of it at the last minute. And I`m ecstatic I held out - this newly released edition is an amazing video transfer that looks like it was made yesterday. Norifumi Sukuzi's tale of a man spawned by rape and who eventually grows up in the likeness of his degenerate sire is one helluva story, but I won`t say more than that to avoid spoiling it for you - if you like these types of films, this is the "Citizen Kane" of asian sexploitation flicks and, as a fan, you should be mandated by law to own it. Buy it, watch it, watch it again, build an altar for it, and genuflect each time you walk by it - it`s that good, as these films go. It`s the cornerstone of this genre, and it certainly beats anything currently being made in this arena, that I`m aware of. And I own tons of these films. If you enjoy the "Prisoner Scorpion" or "Zero Woman" films, or Teruo Ishii`s classics, this flick makes them look like Girl Scout Training videos... buy it.

Norifumi Sukuzi's tale of a man spawned by rape is an exquisitely perverse and beautiful tale. Gorgeously shot, tightly scripted, and featuring deliciously audacious scenes of depravity, "Star of David - Hunting For Beautiful Girls" delivers in every way. Norifumi has also directed the amazing "Sex and Fury", the Nunsploitation classic "School of the Holy Beast", and handsome "Shogun and His 21 Concubines"; this is his violent pink masterpiece.

It starts with robbery and violence, including the rape of the wife as the husband is compelled to watch. The fiercely unwanted penetration yields to her caress of her rapist as her final pleasure engulfs her. This drives her husband mad and subsequently to hate her to the point of binding, leaving her on the floor and whipping her. When she confesses that she is pregnant, the seed is sown in more ways than one. The remainder of the film is of this `bad seed' as a handsome young man, ensnaring various women in a series of experiences. The contention of the film is therefore a serious one; bad seed begets bad seed. There is certainly an abundance of sexploitation. Strangely though or even perversely, the finale may have something to do with redemption? Look for yourself and see if you concur.
