Mako Midori is not to be confused with veteran Japanese actor Mako or veteran porno actress Midori. The Taiwanese actress got her start in Japanese film with a part in Nihiki no mesuinu (1964). Her career in cinema remained prolific until the late '70s, although she is sporadically active to this day. Unfortunately, outside of Japanese arthouse cinema fans, Mako is fairly unknown here in America. Mr. Skin took notice of this exotic beauty, though, when she appeared in Blind Beast (1969). The movie is a bizarre S&M trip through the senses with Mako as a model kidnapped by a blind artist who takes her to his lair, which is more or less a giant warehouse filled with huge sculptures of naked women. (I don't know about art, but this I like!) To cut to the chase, Mako and the blind man spend most of the movie banging away in this raw space, which offers up plenty of nice looks at Mako's magnificent melons, although she stops just short of full-frontal exposure. It's pretty hot until the end, where she goes blind, he cuts off her arms and legs and then stabs himself. Talk about ruining the mood.
