Watch: 鉄男 1989 123movies, Full Movie Online – Mad with pain by the festering wound in his thigh, an extreme sado-sexual “Metal Fetishist” dashes out into the street, and is accidentally hit by the car of a white-collar worker and his girlfriend. But, strangely, instead of dying, the salaryman finds himself before a mysterious and agonisingly majestic transformation–one that twists and bends the pliable human flesh, inextricably intertwining it with the strong and cold iron. Now, there is no turning back, and nothing can stand in the way of the glorious final mutation. Is this the beginning of a new era?.
Plot: A “metal fetishist”, driven mad by the maggots wriggling in the wound he’s made to embed metal into his flesh, runs out into the night and is accidentally run down by a Japanese businessman and his girlfriend. The pair dispose of the corpse in hopes of quietly moving on with their lives. However, the businessman soon finds that he is now plagued by a vicious curse that transforms his flesh into iron.

Rust in peace… Brilliant but shocking for most people
This movie can be explored in many ways: the relationship between human life and technology is the first which comes to mind. Then maybe this fits into a larger theme of industrialization. Still, there are several ways of interpreting each scene and at times I had the feeling that they try to show – or to produce a metaphor for – human emotions, such as cheating, sorrow, the will not to die alone. “And we can rust the whole world and scatter it into the dust of universe” You will certainly make what you want of this movie. You may understand that technology is evil, that industrialization takes our souls away, or that even in our worst moments we crave for closeness and we don’t want to be alone. This is a special movie – so beware – it is not accessible to most people. There’s a chance that you won’t be able to think for yourself and that you’ll expect some quick & nice Hollywood conclusions which you’re not going to get – in which case, this movie will be a waste of your time.
Breathtaking film making that deserves to be seen, at least once.
There is a knowing relentlessness with both visuals and soundtrack equally compelling that forces attention despite the obvious horrors. Not always quite clear what is going on or to how many or how pleasurable or painful the numerous metallic body insertions are but that there is something that demands our attention is undeniable. The streets rush by, there are repeated showings of the motoring hit and run incident that precipitated everything and still the sound pounds and the metal scrapes. The only comparison possible seems to be Eraserhead with this similar unworldliness yet primal connections and almost unbelievably an element of humour. Breathtaking film making that deserves to be seen, at least once.
