In the Realm of the Senses (1976)

Dir. Nagisa Oshima
4/10

Definitely not for Marc, Don, Joel or Jill. I wouldn’t recommend this to Mitchell. Everyone else might find this interesting on some level, but I wouldn’t recommend this. I haven’t decided what I think about this film yet. I do know that I didn’t enjoy it very much. I’m unsure the film has merit or deserves making the 1001 list.

**
The short description of this film: two sex-crazed lovers. You should know that the film has some graphic depictions of sex—both conventional and outlandish. This definitely a candidate for considering exploring the difference between art and pornography.

***
This film just completes the journey on the spectrum of approaching sexual desire, staring with Splendor on the repression, moving to Fast Times, which had a free love approach, and ending finally with Realm, which dealt with extreme sex and an all-consuming sexual desire.
