Shooting Sex
by Bob Carlos Clarke - Terry mentally undresses strangers on his coffee table


The only soft-core porno to be included on our list and another movie that is largely unavailable in the USA, is Shu Lea Cheang's "I.K.U." This inventive sci-fi adventure is part Japanese Anime and part video game. It is sexy and bold where most things are not. I include it here because it is soon to be released in the States if it isn't as of this writing. Adults who like sexy, mind-blowing art-porn should not miss this. Partly influenced by "Blade Runner," "I.K.U" is so much more. Made on a limited budget on digital video, this story of sex robots and a world gone wild is one of the best movies I have ever seen, period. In my top ten favorite films.
