After losing his wife and a maniac-depressive lover, Tetsu becomes obsessed with his son's spiritual (and certainly sinful) life. Pressed to confess a couple of dark crimes (and yet, as innocent as they come),Yu hits Tokyo's underground in search of a perfect sin - and in the process, joins a gang of teenagers training in the 'art' of panchira (clandestine panty snapshots!). On his search for the perfect photo, Yu harasses enough girls to shock his all-forgiving, bible-thumping father, who finally behaves as such and punishes his 'perverse' son. Happy to have his father's attention, Yu decides to fully dedicate himself to the art of panchira - and he quickly becomes one of the very best. Yet, when Yun falls for the Virgin-Mary-like Yoko, he also gets involved with Zero Church, a fanatic religious group with a bizarre agenda of their own.

September 18th, 2012

It's quite a busy week on the home market front, but most of the new releases are TV on DVD. This includes Modern Family: Season Three on DVD or Blu-ray, which is a contender for Pick of the Week. The best limited release of the week is The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel on DVD or Blu-ray, while the Indiana Jones: The Complete Adventures Blu-ray Box Set is also a contender for Pick of the Week. However, in the end I went with The Cabin in the Woods Blu-ray, which is practically the only first-run release of the week. More...
