Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 04/22/1992
"...Hyperkinetic....Driven by a perverse sense of humor..."
Los Angeles Times - 07/09/1992
"...Moving at a constantly furious pace, the film is grisly yet fascinating and even darkly humorous from the get-go..."
Total Film - 11/01/2012
4 stars out of 5 -- "TETSUO: THE IRON MAN has lost none of its satirical bite or shock value."
Sight and Sound - 11/01/2012
"Tsukamoto Shinya's cyberpunk feature debut remains one of the most pulverisingly effective sci-fi horror films of the past quarter of a century."

Description by OLDIES.com:

Somewhere between a modern-day nightmare and a techno-fetishist's ultimate fantasy is this extraordinary film from Shinya Tsukamoto (Vital, A Snake in June). A young man gradually mutates into a metal-being, taking you 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: The Iron Man molds explosive violence, bizarre imagery and jet-black humor into a cinematic experience like you've never seen.

Product Description:

A visually arresting and highly disturbing urban flight of fancy from Japanese auteur Shinya Tsukamoto, who also starred, wrote, shot, and edited. A buttoned-up Japanese commuter accidentally rams his car into a cyberpunky "metal fetishist" (Tsukamoto) whose jollies include transplating metal parts into his body. After this encounter, the businessman begins inexplicably transforming into a metal man-machine, and soon finds himself merging identities (and bodies) with the similarly mechanized fetishist. Followed by a sequel, "Tetsuo II: Bodyhammer." Also features cult short "Drum Struck."
