THE cyberpunk film
21 May 2008 | by (IN) – See all my reviews

When speaking of importance or legend, Tetsuo: The Iron Man will always be the film in which all cyberpunk films are measured against. Good thing that it is an absolutely brilliant piece of work -- but, honestly, I believe this film (and Death Powder, but good luck finding that one) is slightly better overall and is amongst my favorite films of all time.

Starting out very slow, this film eventually ramps up into a speed that has yet to be toppled by any other film. You will find a great atmosphere, amazing music, some unbelievable effects, and a stunning sequence in which Pinnochio runs through a crowd of tens of thousands of Japanese people. The acting is top-notch, the pacing is unconventional, and there are scenes that are absolutely mindblowing.

It's hard to describe exactly what this film is. Though the plot is deceptively simple, to summarize it would make this film sound boring. Really, it's not about the plot so much as it's about pouring on weird effects, images of steam and metal, and squirting paint and blood everywhere. This review won't do it justice, but if you're interested in the least in cyberpunk or "weird" movies, this should be at the top of your list. For me, it's an unbelievable and undeniable classic. Looking forward to the day Criterion re-releases this.
