Synopsis

Filmmaker Shinya Tsukamoto, who scored international cult successes with his visually startling sci-fi fantasies Tetsuo: The Iron Man and Tetsuo II: Body Hammer, delivers the long-awaited third film in the series with Tetsuo: The Bullet Man. Born to a Japanese mother and an American father, Anthony (Eric Bossick) is a businessman who lives in Tokyo with his wife, Yuriko (Akiko Monou), and son, Tom (Tiger Charlie Gerhardt). Anthony often struggles with his temper, and while his late mother taught him it was important not to give himself over to rage, he can't control himself when an auto accident claims his son's life. As furious anger takes over Anthony's mind, his body undergoes a bizarre transformation -- his flesh turns to metal and an incredible variety of weapons begin to emerge from his body, including a high-powered machine gun. As Anthony confronts his father (Stephen Sarrazin), he discovers that his dad's career as a scientist was not at all what he'd been led to believe -- and neither was his mother's fate. Tetsuo: The Bullet Man received its world premiere at the 2009 Venice International Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
