Postman Blues (Sabu, 1997) Sawaki is a postman. One day he visits an old friend of his named Noguchi, who has joined the Yakuza. The visit brings along a serious of paranoid events that lead Sawaki to meet a cancer patient he eventually falls in love with, a hit man named Joe and for the police, which were monitoring Noguchi, to presume him as a criminal. Sabu penned and directed a parody of both Yakuza and crime-solving films, including a number of themes and characters that lie somewhere between the hilarious and the preposterous.

She seems sympathetic to Oroonoko and his plight even claiming that she was respected by him: "[m]yself, whom he called his Great Mistress; and indeed my word would go a great way with him" (Behn, Oroonoko 192).
