From Japanese cult director Shinya Tsukamoto (TETSUO: THE IRON MAN) comes A SNAKE OF JUNE (ROKUGATSU NO HEBI). Tsukamoto continues exploring the themes he set up in TETSUO and other works–extreme alienation from both self and other, the changing relationship between man and machine, and the body as the site where these problems are worked through; themes that have often brought comparison to David Cronenberg. A SNAKE OF JUNE concerns Rinko, a woman working as a telephone counselor, who begins to receive a series of disturbing envelopes from a blackmailer. The mystery man's purpose is simple, to force Rinko into acting out the fantasies she is unable to fulfill at home with her obsessive-compulsive husband. Tsukamoto's film is shot with a style as experimental and unusual as his narrative, and was an award winner at the 2002 Venice Film Festival.
