I recently picked up a hilarious and technically fascinating film from
Japan on videocassette that I had never heard of before, made around 1992.
Filmed in black and white, it uses stop-motion animation and elaborate
make up and costume effects to tell the story of a man who basically
turns into a heap of junkyard rubble.
I'm curious if anyone else has heard of this film and knows anything
about the filmmaker -- has he/she done anything else?
Considering the recent discussions of "NBK" and "Pulp Fiction", I found
"Iron Man" interesting in that it combines some very violent, bloody
sequences with sex, forming an interesting commentary on how pop media
have combined the two.
The story-telling style is quite similar to that of "NBK" as well.
