Nineties: Young Cinema Rebels

Tetsuo: The Iron Man

Steel yourself for this Japanese cult classic – it’s not for the faint-hearted.

Certificate 18

A metal fetishist (yes, that’s a thing) is run over by an office worker who tries to cover up his crime – until his body starts slowly turning into a walking pile of metal. Not for the faint-hearted, Tetsuo is an assault on the senses that could have only come out of the wave of crazed cinematic creativity of the late 80s.
