Sex Power

The following video – evidently a clip from the obscure 1970 film Sex Power by French director Henri Chapier – manages to combine female near-nudity, erotic choreography, a group of black men, a gigantic, leering strangely inflexible cobra and a soundtrack by Vangelis into one seriously Freudian extravaganza. Words fail me:

…and in the interests of gender equality, here’s a rather catchy little number from Turkey’s gift to the world of pop music, the seriously swivel-hipped Tarkan

  1. Never seen this movie by Henry Chapier (although I have seen at least 20 000 movies) and was born in 1961! He did some other movies. He is well known as a movie critic though over here. He worked for Radio Nova.

  4. Great post George.
