The Films of Shinya Tsukamoto - Part 1

Shinya Tsukamoto's cynical cyberpunk aesthetic might seem like a nightmare to some, but given the current state of the world, maybe it isn't all that bad. Join the OV squad as we dissect his early films, discuss the pros and cons of growing a drill penis, and dig deep into his influence on cinema while we collectively mourn the loss of Jack's dearly departed Kia Rio.

THIS WEEK: The Phantom of Regular Size (1986), The Adventure of Denchu-Kozoetsuo (1987), Tetsuo: The Iron Man (1989), Tetsuo II: Body Hammer (1992), and Tokyo Fist (1995)
