If you and your friends imagined raping a girl you merely saw once, would you go track her down and tell her what you imagined? That’s what the main characters of Ôshima’s Sing a Song of Sex try and do.
As Ôshima gets more and more experimental with his form he still maintains the level of moral ambiguity that I have come to expect from one of his films. Sing a Song of Sex also slowly builds politically, until it ends full force on politics that I didn’t quite grasp during this first viewing.
After watching this movie, you too will be singing a song of sex.
