Episode 3: Full Metal Tetsuo

Two weeks in the making and now yours for the taking!

In our third episode, we (Josh and Coffin Jon) ponder the technophobia of Shinya Tsukamoto’s seminal cyberpunk film Tetsuo – The Iron Man.  Also included are our Netflix Instant recommendations, Twitter question about postmodern film, listener feedback, and more film talk then you might care to listen to but too bad because the show is free and really, what else are you doing on a Friday night anyway?

    Hey guys,

    Ken from sogoodreviews and Podcast On Fire here. Really enjoyed this episode too. it brought back memories of watching Tetsuo back in the day and I’ve forgotten how much the soundtrack added to it. I like abrasive, industrial noise and setting it against these images, it makes for a wild ride. Back then I didn’t ponder what it all meant. Don’t know if I would today but you guys did really well discussing the symbolism of the film. A laid back, informative experience and you’re quickly establishing yourselves as required listen for the interested and even those who haven’t seen the genre or movies you cover.

    Well done and keep up the good work

    best
    Ken
