Taiwanese-born experimental filmmaker Shu Lea Cheang directs this dizzying computer-enhanced sci-fi cyber-porn flick. A pun that roughly translates from Japanese as "I'm coming!", the title aptly sets the film's orgasmic tone. The story, as such, revolves around the GENOM Corporation, which has started mass-producing sexbots for the lofty purpose of bettering humankind's sexual development. Reiko (Tokitoh Ayumu) is one such cyborg; her body being one giant "Gen-XXX IKU Coder" hard drive, she is burdened with the task of collecting "orgasm data" by shagging everything that moves. Set against some brilliantly bizarre digitally-animated set pieces, the film's characters couple, triple, and so forth with remarkable indifference to gender, species, or physiological make-up. This film was screened at the 2000 Sundance Film Festival.
