  • 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."
