Mnasidika (1969) -- Highly obscure late 60's sex and sleaze excursion from the directors of 'Snuff' Micheal and Roberta Findlay. One minute, a man (director Findlay) is by the ocean side; the next, he wakes -- wearing a silly little toga! -- on the Isle of Lesbos in Ancient Greece. Seeing a nubile young lady sprinting through a pleasantly pastoral landscape, he follows and finds that she's caught her footsie under a big bad log and can't get up. Gallantly, he comes to her aid. Ungallantly, he immediately begins to maul her. When she struggles, he promptly beats her to death, then tenderly humps her bloody body.
Elsewhere on the island, pretty young sisters of Sappho like UTA ERICKSON and LINDA BOYCE spend their life romping in the nude, dancing in the nude, and fondling both themselves and their galpals in the nude. Until the bloody corpse of the murdered woman comes back to life (can lesbians do that?) and, brandishing a torch, chases the man into a clearing where he's surrounded by five lovely but very pissed-off young ladies who tie him spread-eagle on the ground, perform a (red-tinted) ritual over his body, symbolically smash some squash and, you guessed it, castrate him....While Findlay's films usually take the Battle of the Sexes quite literally, this time the gulf between Male and Female is so extreme -- a rapist murderer loose in the world of homosexual women -- that watching Mnasidika is like watching two alien species who can't live together. This film is firmly anchored in the gutter which, of course, is where the best movies are made.
