Review

A sequel to Ridley Scott´s masterpiece, "Blade Runner", was to be made into an erotic film. then "I.K.U" would be it. It is a Science Fiction, erotic, digital independent cinema film. The film begins exactly where "Blade Runner" ends, with a sex scene in the elevator, with that of a replicant and I.K.U. Runner Dizzy. The Tyrell Corporation is now involved in the genome business, and the task of replicants is to collect data on orgasms, through sex with human begins. In 2016, sex has become the only value and ideology to determine the affluence of life. The film follows the sexual journey of a replicant, Reiko, who can transform itself into seven different forms. You see the repetition, transition, and deeper exploration of every possible incident as in an erotic film. However, this film is not simply an erotic film without any meaning: there is a parody of dialogue, which overturns the romantic and conventional ideology of sex, shown in "Blade Runner". There is a dual ending encompassing both homosexual and heterosexual love, mosaic computer graphics to symbolize and ridicule the censorship on the cinema. "The view from the vagina", to try to pursue satisfaction at the invisible point of desire are quite interesting and disturbing as well. Also it is not far off that an I.K.U. chip for orgasm data will be sold at street vending machines or through mobile phones or on the Internet. "I.K.U." produced with expertise in its field and broken English, may in fact be an I.K.U. chip circulating in the form of cinema.
