Ride Or Die (2021) review

“A highly enjoyable romance narrative that thrives on a rich current of heartfelt romantic and raw natural emotions. “

Hotel Iris (2021) review [Osaka Asian Film Festival]

“An artfully composed erotic narrative that plays with the well-known psychoanalytic fact that the relational past of subjects impacts the possibility and appearance of sexual attraction between a man and a woman.”

Lovers Are Wet (1973) review

“Not only a narrative about the destructiveness of male sexual opportunism, but also (a narrative) [that explores] the irreducible opaqueness of the female subject as such.”

Sexual Drive (2021) [IFFR 2021]

An amazing and unconventional narrative that not only explores the eroticism of the oral drive in an enticing and visually pleasing way, but also succeeds to touch, in a lighthearted way, upon the complexity of sexual desire as such.

Gemini (1999) review

A fabulous and unique romance horror narrative that uncovers the often-forgotten truth that all speaking beings are driven by a desire to be loved/desire to love.

Gushing Prayer: A 15-Year-Old Prostitute (1971) review

“Not only does Adachi frame the societal Other as the cause of the lost state of youth and the youth’s suicidal response, but Adachi also formulates, in a truly confronting way, his hope for this lost youth to find desire in creating a different Other for tomorrow.”
