TETSUO, THE IRON MAN (1989)
Anything you imagined while reading that description doesn't even capture 1% of the frantic madness that happens onscreen. TETSUO, THE IRON MAN is a nutty fucking film and I can't even imagine the hardship and torment the filmmakers went through making the movie. That said, it was also a chore to sit through the entire thing. Even at 67 minutes, I felt my brain starting to melt out of my handsome ears.
Surreal story, amazing visuals, interesting (but repetitive) industrial music, mechanical drill penis, awesome B & W photography, male rape, lots of screaming. TETSUO, THE IRON MAN might be kinda boring to sit through, but it's still worth watching for anybody interesting in experimental cinema.
