Shozin Fukui

Film director


Who is Shozin Fukui?

Shozin Fukui is a Japanese movie director and screenwriter. According to the Internet Movie Database, he has produced two experimental shorts and two full length surrealistic movies. These four movies are widely available, having been reissued on DVD by Unearthed Films. According to other sources, he has released four more movies since then. These are almost completely unknown outside of Japan.

964 Pinocchio and Rubber's Lover are considered important, core films of the Japanese cyberpunk genre.

964 Pinocchio is often compared to Shinya Tsukamoto's cyberpunk classic Tetsuo: The Iron Man and it is worth noting that Fukui worked on the crew for Tetsuo. Many fans and critics consider Fukui's aesthetic to be sufficiently divergent from Tsukamoto's for his films to stand on their own, even considering the extremely deep similarities.
