About Jon Jung

Jon Jung (aka “Coffin Jon”) is the producer and host of the VCinema podcast and editor-in-chief of the VCinema blog. He is an avid movie fan who specializes in Japanese cinema, but enjoys everything from artsy high-brow to mega-billion blockbusters to straight-to-video turds. As an Asian-American, he got the best of all cinematic worlds as a child by receiving mega-doses of Ozu, Bruce Lee, Kamen Rider, and American drive-in movies in addition to a steady diet of punk rock, Japanese literature, and Buddhism. He spent six years in Japan as an English teacher and translator. In 2004, he returned to the United States to complete his Masters in Language Education and continue his career as a language educator and cultural anthropologist with a focus on language policy and language shift. Jon is a former Myrle Clark Award recipient for excellence in creative writing and has contributed to World Film Locations: Tokyo (Intellect, 2011).

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?
