'MADAME O' (1967) is a classic and controversial Asian tale of revenge from late 1960s Japan. Raped and left for dead and w/ a wicked strain of syphyllis at the tender age of 16, our forever-scarred heroine goes on to become a Doctor attempting to find a cure by day, and a woman who picks up men to contaminate them w/ her disease by night. Director Seiichi Fukuda uses widescreen cinematography and an unusual mix of both black and white and color imagery to drive home his gore, nudity and shocking violence for the time. It succeeds beautifully all around. The plot gets deeper when the good doctor marries and suspects something fishy in her husband`s past. Say no more. This Asian cult classic is far better than others like 'The Bite-Japanese Slave Girls', or 'Slave Widow', both of which were a waste of time and cash.
