About the Movie
In this audaciously kinky, meta-comedic thriller, a lonely father with a secret taste for S&M (Nao Ohmori, best known for his titular turn in Takashi Miike's Ichi the Killer) hires a boutique dominatrix agency that specializes in guerilla acts of public degradation. Although the rough treatment and humiliation Takafumi Katayama receives from these leather-clad women—in cafés and on the street—drives him to ecstatic pleasure, he soon finds himself over his head during a surprise house call by one of the mistresses. After a freak and fatal accident, Takafumi is forced into action with a slew of vengeful dominatrices chasing him down. With the help of his son, he'll have to devise a plan to take on the relentless femmes fatales, who each possess a unique S&M talent by which to exact painful revenge. R100—the title a riff on the Japanese movie rating system, whose equivalent to NC-17 is R18—is directed by Hitoshi Matsumoto (Big Man Japan, Symbol) - one of Japan's most preeminent and beloved comedic talents.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: A little punishment goes a long way, especially for the rest of us, yet on it drags, torturously, slap, kick, slap, kick.
Fresh: If a dominatrix is one who takes total control of her passive partner, then "R100" is the cinematic equivalent of a kinky femme fatale in black leather and stiletto heels, cracking a whip and a smile.
Fresh: "R100" suggests that extreme and perverse films allow the everyman to seek thrills in his otherwise-monotonous life.
Fresh: A reflection on destructive sexual fantasies vaunts some wonderfully outrageous and original comedy but an unimpressive final act.
Waste of money..
What a dumb movie , dont waste your time or money on a piece of crap like this..
If you're a fan of David Lynch you'll probably like this one. It's twisted, goofy, dark, and just plain bizaare. I loved it.
