Saturday Matinee: Tokyo Fist


“Tokyo Fist” (1995) can be seen as director Shinya Tsukamoto’s surreal precursor to “Fight Club”, but it also features an unsettling mood and body horror reminiscent of the films of David Lynch and David Cronenberg respectively. Added to the mix is Tsukamoto’s unique brand of visceral and hyper-kinetic filmmaking, making Tokyo Fist an unforgettable experience for fans of global cult cinema (though it’s not for the squeamish).
