The Adventure Of Denchu-Kozo (1987)

Young Denchu-Kozo was an outcast at school--that'll happen, when you have a utility pole growing out of your back--and he wanted to repay Momo, his only kind classmate, by showing her his homemade time machine. The device throws him 25 years into a dystopian future, where he must rescue the adult Momo from a predatory race of punk vampires. Shot-on-Super 8 debut feature that presaged plenty of the craziness to come from filmmaker Shinya Tsukamoto stars Tomorou Taguchi, Nobu Kanaoka. 47 min. In Japanese with English subtitles. C/Rtg: NR

Tetsuo: The Iron Man (1989)

A hyperkinetic soundtrack and a minimum of dialogue add to the film’s disquieting, cyberpunk feel. 67 min. In Japanese with English subtitles. BW/Rtg: NR

Tetsuo II: Body Hammer (1991)

Writer/director Shinya Tsukamoto continues his cinematic exploration of the merging of human and machine, as a job-obsessed Japanese "salaryman" finds himself turning into the latest cybernetic mutant.

Haze (2005)

In this compact and claustrophobic effort from Shinya Tsukamoto, the writer-director stars as a man who regains consciousness in a cramped, barely lit catacomb, with no idea of how he got there. As he torturously makes his way through the booby-trapped maze, he encounters a woman consigned to the same fate, but their clinging to one another for safety and sanity offers no guarantee for either. Mao Saito, Takahiro Murase also star. 49 min. in Japanese with English subtitles. C/Rtg: NR

Kotoko (2011)

In this disquieting collaboration co-scripted by director Shinya Tsukamoto and Japanese pop star Cocco, Kotoko (Cocco) is a mentally disintegrating single mother whose propensity for self-harm and ever-increasing hallucinations cost her custody of her young son to her sister. Now alone and increasingly paranoid, she's approached by a smitten stalker (Tsukamoto) who offers to take care of her...and an already strange relationship would take even stranger turns. Yûko Nakamura also stars. 91 min. In Japanese with English subtitles. C/Rtg: NR

Killing (2018)

In mid-19th century Japan, masterless samurai Mokunoshin Tsuzuki (Sosuke Ikematsu) labored in the rice paddies and dreamed of the day he could put his martial skills to the test. He'd get his chance, once a veteran swordsman (writer/director Shinya Tsukamoto)recruited him to deal with rising civil unrest...but when his callow co-worker (Ryusei Maeda) tags along on the mission, disaster might follow as well.
