Stray Cat Rock: Sex Hunter (Hasebe, 1970): BFI Southbank, NFT3, 8.50pm
This film, which is screening as part of the Japanese film Seasons in the Sun season at BFI Southbank, is also being shown on June 25th. You can find the details here.
Here is the BFI introduction: The third in the five-episode delinquent girl-gang series that thrust
Meiko Kaji to prominence, the provocatively-titled Sex Hunter is widely
considered the best, with its raucous action and radical plot set in the
mixed-race demi-monde surrounding a US naval base. The rough sexuality
presaged Nikkatsu’s wholesale switch to erotic material the following
year, which led to Kaji leaving the studio for more iconic roles as
Female Convict Scorpion and Lady Snowblood.
Here is the trailer.
