If you're wondering why there's been so little activity here at Twisted Flicks recently, its because I'm currently soaking up the atmosphere on holiday in Japan. As you can imagine, there's many better things to do here than blogging!
However, while cycling around Tokyo today, my attention was grabbed by some advertising adorning a streetside clock for the movie Hana to Hebi 3 (Flower and Snake 3).
It's a little surreal seeing advertising for a bondage movie right out in the street like this - and Ginza is not at all a seedy neighbourhood! Its where all the luxury shops are, with the likes of Luis Vuitton, Chanel, Armani etc.
Intrigued, I followed the arrows and came across a grimy movie theatre below the street, the Ginza Cine Patos.
An LCD screen on the wall was showing trailers for upcoming attractions ... and one that caught my eye was the Japanese trailer shown below for Takashi Ishii's Nûdo no yoru: Ai wa oshiminaku ubau - aka 'A Night in Nude' Vol 2 - a sequel to his highly acclaimed 1993 flick. Thought some of you fellow J-Cinema fans might be interested. Looks to be starting its theatrical run in Japan, Oct 2nd, 2010.

And for those that can read Japanese, here's the official website.
