This film is a shocking indictment of the hypocrisy and cruelty of the Japanese sex industry and the society that passively condones it. A young prostitute named Ai (Miho Nikaido) specializes in bondage and sadomasochism. Her clientele includes the rich and powerful, a corrupt assortment that ranges from gangsters to corporate executives. As Ai's world of drugs and prostitution grows darker, she begins a desperate search for a way out, including a futile attempt to win the affections of one of her more civil clients. Although the film is intended to deliver a sharply critical message, in doing so, it depicts many graphic acts of sex and violence.

A shimmering brightness infuses "Tokyo Decadence". The neon-blasted streets, the eerie, artificial glow of offices and hotel rooms, even the translucent glow of daylight insinuates under the skin of the film.

The antiheroine of the film passes through a sexual Seven-Circles-of-Hell in Tokyo, used and battered by clients, gangsters and even friends who ply her with drugs and subversive sex. None of the sexuality is erotic, but it's also not presented as obscene or tragic. The spare, minimal approach to the dialogue heightens the tension and sense of dislocation. The film presents sex as a matter-of-fact commodity, flesh as spiritual bargaining tool in return for a temporary escape from alienation and fear.

It's an intriguing film, difficult to watch but rich in visual beauty and its subtextual dimensions are quite rewarding. The film fetishizes everything to the point of abstraction. The city of Tokyo becomes a gleaming morass of lights, skyscrapers and soullessness.

A brutal and delicate work of art.
