A Sketch for Tetsuo
7 October 1999 | by FoodSee all my reviews

Fans of Tetsuo:the Iron Man will find this film of interest: it is basically the same story, only as a short, and in color. All of the same elements are there: The salaryman played by Tomoro Toguchi; Shinya Tsukamoto playing a nemesis who remotely induces a robotic woman to attack Salaryman in the subway; the interlude with the drill-penis; the combination of both characters into a larger, metal-encrusted monster at the end of the film. The soundtrack has a great song by Chu Ishikawa. This is an exciting film because of it's youthfulness; The budget is low, the pixilation effects are cool and the director in his acting role looks barely in his early twenties. The viewer feels the fun of making the film.
