TETSUO: THE IRON MAN

Shinya Tsukamoto, Japan, 1989, Arrow Films, Cult

“…as surreally weird as Eraserhead… as intense as a Novocainless tooth extraction.” - Richard Harrington, Washington Post

It starts with a bizarre merging of flesh and metal and accelerates into a hyper-hallucinatory state where springs, wires and solder erupt fountain-like from a man’s body. As the “Iron Man” mutates uncontrollably into a walking, clanking man-machine, terrorized by his new body parts, every aspect of his life becomes dehumanized and mechanical. Running on techno-erotic adrenaline and wrought iron perversion, Tetsuo: The Iron Man’s delirious pace and unforgettable imagery welds itself firmly into your mind.

Practically absent from screens since the mid-90’s, this mid-bending cyberpunk classic is once again available to melt the brains of movie goers everywhere!
