Tetsuo The Iron Man

Tetsuo The Iron Man

Directed by Shinya Tsukamoto

This surreal Japanese cult sensation profiles a man who mutates into a metal being. Somewhere between a modern-day nightmare and a techno-fetishist's ultimate fantasy, this incredible film from Shinya Tsukamoto took viewers on a surreal journey into a dark and disturbing world where self-inflicted body transformations and post-human women form the fabric of a strange new reality. Likened to the work of David Lynch and David Cronenberg, TETSUO molds explosive violence, bizarre sexual imagery and jet-black humor into a cinematic experience unlike any you've seen.

like an actual nightmare of flesh and metal put on screen. Moves like my nightmares do.

An absolute facemelter, an assault on the senses that never lets up for a second.

Transformation, mutation, obliteration, disintegration, exploitation, you name it and it's here. Unapologetic and a towering achievement. So many textures and materials, so much created with really so little. Seems like a really good sibling of Mad God.
