Expressionist Tetsuo

One of the primary influences on Shinya Tsukamoto's early masterpiece, Tetsuo: The Iron Man (1989), was German Expressionist film. These are some stills that I think show that influence. (Kei Fujiwara in particular looks like a 20s film star, but other elements of the set, lighting, and cinematography also show a strong German silent era influence.)
