About the book:

With Tetsuo: The Iron Man, Tetsuo II: Body Hammer, Tokyo Fist and Bullet Ballet, Shinya Tsukamoto has become one of the most widely praised filmmakers in Japan today. Edgy, intense and overwhelming, Tsukamoto's films are nightmarish visions of a world in which man's greatest enemy is his own environment of cold concrete and twisted technology. His debut film, the legendary cyberpunk masterpiece Tetsuo: The Iron Man, saw him compared to David Lynch, David Cronenberg and Ridley Scott. The film rejuvenated the Japanese film industry, paving the way for an entire generation of young Japanese directors Hideo Nakata (The Ring) and Takeshi Kitano (Zatoichi). It also deeply influenced Western filmmakers as diverse as Quentin Tarantino (Kill Bill), David Fincher (Fight Club) and the Wachowski Brothers (The Matrix). " Illustrated with hundreds of stills, behind-the-scenes pictures and rare photographs from Tsukamoto's private collection
