I didn't see it, but it screened as SCOUTMAN at the 2000 Toronto and Venice
Film Fests. It's directed by porn director Ishioka Masato whose previous
works include (according to the press release) Taiku no Jikan (Gym Hour) and
Chikanhaksho 7 (Statement of a Pervert part 7) and it starts at least one
established AV star.  I can't tell if from the release if the film is any
good. I seeme remember a couple films like this -- exposes of Japan's sex
industry -- have come out lately, but I can't remember the there names...
