Firstly if you liked the snow sword scene in "Kill Bill" then you need to see where he took it from, it's positively mesmerizing in this picture plus she's naked! Actually this one does have a lot of the "sex" mentioned in the title and a lot of nudity but I didn't find that it strayed from the plot much at all, plus it was so artfully shot it's hard to argue with. I should explain the plot perhaps? Ocho is our hero, she's a petty thief and gambler but she's very cool. She ends up meeting up with three gangsters who killed her father and well spends most of the movie getting revenge on them and various Yakuza who seem to be chasing her. We even get "Thriller: A Cruel Picture"'s Christina Lindberg in this as a spy who arrived to make things more tough for Ocho as she is also a proficient fighter. It's quite action packed and filled with great fight sequences and things Quentin has likely borrowed. This is definitely a classic exploitation flick that deserves to be discovered by many.
