The Adventure of Denchu-Kozo ★★★

In hindsight, this is the exact precursor of Testuo: The Iron Man one could expect of. Tsukamoto had already built his own idiosyncratic style and taste from the get-go, even though this short film is relatively a ‘tamer’ version of the forthcomings, its phallic symbol is the most explicit. Never mind the plot if you’re interested.
