| left me feeling dirty
This third entry in the "Angel Guts" films is as different to the "Red Classroom" as that one was to "High School Co Ed". This film has Nami, a reporter for a popular womens' magazine, doing a series of stories on rape victims. The film draws parallels with the sensialistic exploitative treatment that rape victims, whom just want to forget and move on from the tragic event in their lives, get from the media and how in some ways that can be as bad or worse than the act itself. Nami is willing to do anything to get these victims to tell about their rapes, with all the juicy lurid details, all in the name of the dubious sound-byte "saving other girls from having to go through it". Director Noboru Tanaka took over for the director of the two previous films, Chusei Sone. Tanaka's style is decidedly more visually harse as I found myself squirming in my seat numerous times, this outing is NOT one for the faint of heart. Furthermore, to my horror, I found myself wanting for Nami to be inevitably raped herself for the awful treatment of the victims. Suffice it to say I needed a shower to clean the grime off me after this one.

My Grade: B-

DVD Extras: Commentary by Jasper Sharp; Bio/Filmographies; a 40 minute interview with Noboru Tanaka; Original Sleeve art; and Trailers for this and 4 other Angel Guts Films (High School Co Ed, Red Classroom, Red Vertigo, & Red Porno) all available in Artsmagik's Box-set, but for some reason the 6th film "Angel Guts: Red Flash" is not in the set
