Home > Tetsuo: The Iron Man

Made on a micro-budget, on 16mm and in black and white, Tetsuo is one of the most influential Japanese films of all time. The story of a man whose flesh slowly merges with metal launched a plethora of inferior cyberpunk copies but none had the energy and sheer filmmaking flare of the original. Tetsuo is an astounding, energetic and original piece of filmmaking that today still has few peers.
