The strange saga of hiroshi the freeloading sex machine
After meeting single mom Haraku and her son Yuichiro, the freeloading Hiroshi unabashedly squeezes himself into their life by starting a sexual relationship with the former. While spending time with Yuichiro, Hiroshi is introduced to neighbors and friends of the family, including a group of men who idle away the days betting on bug fights by the river where they catch their contenders. However turbulent this group of odd personalities is outside of the matches, the squabbles and playfulness of the group as they talk the finer art of insect melee create some of the most sincere and memorable interactions in the film. As a result, the cinematography is geared more towards a playful relationship with the audience, instead of the more stylized format often found in the Pink genre.

The Strange Saga of Hiroshi the Freeloading Sex Machine
Sex Machine tells of the affable but simple Hiroshi, who during one sweltering summer in a small, parochial town, moves in with his girlfriend, Haruka. Their lovemaking is as athletic as it is bizarre but a dark storm comes looming when Haruka's ex boyfriend comes knocking at the door. Crickets, over-the-top sex scenes and Hiroshi looking like a frog when climaxing are the movie's only three scarlet threads, other than that it's just really dull and confusing all around I actually didn't realize I had already watched this until I went to the Letterboxd page to log it. First off, let me applaud Sex Machine for its short run length.
August picks are here, including a time-traveling Seth Rogen and a terrifying new series from Jordan Peele and J. Watch the video. Near Kawahara, a young man on a bus connives to meet a single mother by knocking over her son's box of crickets. He's Hiroshi, she's Haruka, the boy is Yuichiro.
