Tetsuo: The Iron Man

Tetsuo: The Iron Man (鉄男: Tetsuo) is a 1989 Japanese cyberpunk film by cult-film director Shinya Tsukamoto produced by Japan Home Video. This, his third film, is an extremely graphic but also strikingly-filmed fantasy shot in the same low-budget, underground-production style as his first two films. Tetsuo established Tsukamoto internationally and created his worldwide cult following.

“That Time My Dad Walked into My Room While I Was Watching the Sex Scene in Tetsuo”

I’ve had a copy of this since it first came out on Tartan DVD.  Once, while looking for movies to watch my Mother found it and asked if she would like it.  I emphatically said no.  Later she decided that she must have had a wider tolerance and acceptance of cinema than I gave her credit for and she watched it anyway.  She said only, “You were right, I didn’t like it at all.”  Now whenever I see her a tiny fraction of my mind is aware that she has seen a man violated anally by a tube thing and a woman killed by sex with a drill penis.  Luckily though, she believes me when I tell her she wouldn’t like various films, and I didn’t have to lend her my copy of Gummo.
