Description - Iron Man by Tom Mes

This work talks about the Japan's most influential and unique filmmaker! With "Tetsuo: The Iron Man", "Tetsuo II: Body Hammer", "Tokyo Fist and Bullet Ballet", Shinya Tsukamoto has become one of the most widely praised filmmakers in Japan today. Edgy, intense and overwhelming, Tsukamoto's films are nightmarish visions of a world in which man's greatest enemy is his own environment of cold concrete and twisted technology. Shinya Tsukamoto rejuvenated the Japanese film industry, paving the way for an entire generation of young Japanese directors like Takashi Miike ("Audition") and Hideo Nakata ("The Ring"). He has been credited as a direct influence on modern Western cinematic masters including Quentin Tarantino ("Kill Bill"), David Fincher ("Fight Club") and the Wachowski Brothers ("The Matrix"). Illustrated with hundreds of stills, behind-the-scenes pictures and rare photographs from Tsukamoto's private collection, "Iron Man: The Cinema of Shinya Tsukamoto" reveals the mind, the methods and the madness of Japan's most influential and unique filmmaker.
