‘Tokyo Fist’


Director: Shinya Tsukamoto

Language: Japanese (subtitled in English)

On Nov. 25, Third Window Films of the U.K. will release a remastered Blu-ray of “Tokyo Fist,” a 1995 film by Shinya Tsukamoto. A followup to his cyber-punk classics “Tetsuo (Tetsuo: The Iron Man)” and “Tetsuo II: Body Hammer,” “Tokyo Fist” stars Tsukamoto as a businessman who suspects that a boyhood-pal-turned-boxer is having an affair with his fiancee — and begins training for a fight to the death. It has the pounding visceral excitement and nightmarish weirdness of the first two films in spades.
