Love and Crime - Teruo Ishii (1969)

Teruo Ishii brought the world yet another trippy tortuous film in 1969 with "Meiji, taisho, showa ryoki onna hanzaishi", a.k.a. "Love and Crime". based around four notorious females criminals from the Edo Era to the present day (circa 1960's) the film is famed for its inclusion of a cameo appearance by the real Sada Abe, the woman at the center of Nagisa Oshima's erotic classic "In the Realm of the Senses". A word of warning though - this trailer is NOT SAFE FOR WORK.
