Hey hey! Just posted a review for the Pink film A Lonely Cow Weeps at Dawn, brought to us by the good people over at Pink Eiga! Pink Eiga is the go to distribution company for Pink films, and they have put out quite a large number of interesting titles since their inception only a few years ago. For those of you who do not already know, Pink Eiga (or Pink Film) is a low budget, Japanese soft-core erotic film that usually covers genres along the lines of action and general sexploitaion. Sometimes delving into other genres like comedy and drama, Pink films are a huge market in their native Japan, and have become increasingly popular over here in the states as of late. According to someone that knows more than I do, there are rules that must be followed to make a Pink film...umm, Pink?!
1. The film must have the requisite number of sex scenes (typically a minimum of five).
2. The film must be approximately one hour in length (perfect for the Pink Eiga triple-bill format).
3. It must be shot on 35 mm film (or occasionally 16mm) in a week and finished within one month.
4. The film must be completed within an extremely limited budget (around $35,000 US).
Okay, hope someone learned something out of all that jibber jabber...there is a whole lot more when it comes to Pink films and their many genre incarnations, so check out the wiki page for some more info. I personally enjoy what I have seen from the Pink Eiga company, though the films are real good at making you feel slightly uncomfortable in all their insanely sexual glory, as was the case with A Lonely Cow Weeps at Dawn - which is possibly the strangest movie to make it's way into any review I have ever done. Watch the NSFW trailer below, and you will get an idea what I mean!
Now, don't let that trailer scare you completely off! It is super odd and totally unacceptable for some, but there is more there than meets the eye. If you are curious as to what I mean, then now would be a great time to go ahead and click on the link and read my review! Hope you enjoy!
